Ind vs SA: Rishab Pant dropped, Virat talks Rohit Sharma as opener
Rishabh Pant has been dropped from playing XI for the first test against South Africa. Skipper Virat Kohli confirmed that Wriddhiman Saha will replace Pant. Saha will be playing his first match after a gap of 22 months. Pant’s exclusion comes after his poor performance in the T20Is against the Proteas. Virat Kohli also spoke about Rohit Sharma as Test opener. “We are not looking at a certain kind of display of batting from Rohit. It is about him finding his game at the top. Yes, his strength is to take the game forward.
