Ramesh : "Lookin at the way the Indian batsmen are handling the pitch conditions now ,On an overseas series, I would recommend that India should first play the ODIs and then the Test matches .... as this will give time to the batsmen to adjust to the pitch conditions " ---- That's probably not up to them though, is it?

Vamsi: "The only problem with the "wants to be world-beaters" idea is, they are discounting the fact that Kohli could lose form. Hashim has all the "fastest to" records beating Kohli in ODIs and then his form is hit. It will happen, someday. And if it is going to be the World cup, India will be left with their lower cover down." ---- Very fair point. Although India might perhaps be thinking they shouldn't disrespect South Africa's seam attack. There may be other chances to experiment, with a year left to the World Cup

Parikshit: "The middle should be tested the natural way, in the middle order only. Not by artificially pushing them up the order. Too bad they are not getting enough chances. But its a good problem to have than to let bad habits of losing creep through the back door. The middle order's time will come .. if not this series, then next."

Aniket: "I guess Kohli is just trying to improve his records in chasing, as if they aren't good enough already! Don't understand the logic of not giving chances to Rahane. Don't care even if India Loses this match, the middle order had to get chances today!" ---- This team wants to be world-beaters, and world-beaters don't back down from the opportunity to beat South Africa in South Africa 5-1
