Indian caption Virat Kohli dropped the best Indian bowler, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, from the playing XI for the second test match and included Ishant Sharma in the team. Bhuvi was the best Indian player (including both batsman and bowler) in the first test match. He had a particularly good match — four wickets and a vital 25 with the bat in the first innings, two wickets and 13 not out in the second innings. He took the most wickets among Indians (6 wickets); second-most after Philander (9). As a batsman, he faced most balls among Indians (127 balls); second-most after AB de Villiers in the match (134). Without him, India would have lost the match by an inning.
After looking at the playing XI, former Indian player VVS Laxman tweeted, “I am surprised not to find Bhuvi in the playing XI today. In the first test, he took the most number of wickets (6 wickets) showing skill in using the new ball & batted quite well showing patience and resilience. Am I missing something here “. Former swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag also stated that Virat Kohli “should drop himself” if he fails in the second Test against South Africa, launching a scathing attack on the India skipper for his team selection. When such news comes, twitteratis do not waste even a second to post funny tweets. Check out some of those funny quotes.
