South Africa vs . India
The question is would India be able to hold its No.1 position in Test cricket. Smith, Kallis, Amla, Prince, Steyn are well known players but coming down in line South Africa also have players like Alviro Petersen, Botha & Paul Harris who could indeed spoil the broth! Though the Indian pitches would aid spin for the last two days of the Test match, it needs to be seen if the South African team does employ the services of 2 spinners in the form of Botha & Harris. As for the Indian team, Dhoni has a very tough job on hand as he needs to choose between Ishant Sharma & Mithun. Would he endorse his faith in Mithun Or Ishant Sharma? Or would Mithun be warming the benches? It would be a tough call on Mithun if he is selected in the playing 11, he only has one match to prove his worth as Rahul & Laxman may be back for the second Test Match. It would be a great match to watch for all and RCB should not miss out especially on Botha & Harris for the next IPL!
