India have promoted ODI and T20 vice-captain Rohit Sharma to open the innings with a view to get the best out of hitman’s talents. It has been a bit of a rough ride for Rohit Sharma if Test cricket is concerned. It has not clicked for him in the longer format of the game, and with no place in the middle order, the selectors thought it would be best to have him open the innings. Replicating a Virender Sehwag model right from the onset will be too much to ask, but at least his fans will be happy to see him in action. Another player who must grab his chance is Ravichandran Ashwin who is likely to play. The veteran has been a wonderful servant for India in test cricket, and on Indian pitches, South Africa will find him tough to negotiate. Wriddhiman Saha replaces out of form Rishabh Pant whose stocks have tumbled recently.

South Africa will rely on their pace attack featuring Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Vernon Philander that can be quite a handful if they find their rhythm early. Keshav Maharaj will find spin as and when the wicket wears and tears. In the batting department, all eyes will be on skipper Faf Du Plessis and opener Dean Elger who are tailor-made for Test cricket. Wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock coming in late down the order is also known for scoring big runs while young opener Adrien Markram should be battle-ready playing in subcontinent conditions.
