Really interested to see if Parnell plays again. And who takes the new ball for SA.
If Parnell plays again (think he will) he will get the new ball, they always hope he will swing it early. Morkel may open instead of Rabada.

I would say Kesh to play but it is India we playing today with Dhawan and Yuvi as left-handers. But rate his character and skill of course to stand up in occassions like this.

Be mad to play Parnell who averages 81 and goes at 7.4 RPO v India.

I actually struggle to remember any time where Parnell has played well, why does he keep getting matches?

Every 10th game he gets a bag of wickets.
Waiting for the day he comes to the party with the bat.
Left-arm variety.

Obviously being flippant but they clearly believe he has something and Im not sure what it is.

Kepler, Robbie P and Eric Simons pretty much in agreement in studio for Kesh in for Parnell. Same wicket as Ind v Srl.

Got tickets for this one, very excited. Getting to see the likes of QDK, Rabada and ABDV is pretty special. Please don't rain.
Must have changed locations to be watching this...:)
Shall be watching as a neutral too, switching between this and the French Open, hoping to see some good cricket and tennis both.

Abbott leaving really hurt the ODI side..a lot more than the test side because you still have Rabada/Philander and Steyn (hopefully when he is back) but in ODIs Abbot was the best new ball bowler

Andile Phehlukwayo comes in for Wayne Parnell. Good. Would prefer maharaj but at least they made the change.

Safe selection in Lucky. Safe to say very disappointed.

India have lost 7 of last 8 chasing v SAf and the other was a no result. Bizarre stat.

We couldn't defend 320 against SL. We are losing today if we get less than 400.

Dry pitch could mean some potential reverse. India gonna miss Shami/Yadav. Would have picked one of them at least in place of Bumrah

Best thing for SA losing the toss. Hopefully De Kock does not stink it up as he is usually very good against India

The Oval, a flat deck, is difficult for the Indian side, whose bowling struggles on flat decks. Yet the Indian team goes in with three bowlers- the main reason they lost the last game.

At least one of Pandya and Jadeja should have been benched- yet these two may end up bowling 20 overs. It's anybody's guess how much the South Africans will score off them.

Left-arm variety.
This often seems to come up as an argument in favour of Parnell's inclusion, which I don't understand. It's not as though South Africa's seam attack has struggled without a left-armer, and there's certainly been variety in those attacks.
