By now we all know what happened in the first test match between India and South Africa. Yes, India had
Twitter Goes Mad As Kohli Not Only Does Not Select Rahane Yet Again, Also Drops Bhuvi!
As we mentioned on our blog before, the jury was certainly against Kohli for not playing KL Rahul and more importantly Rahane in the first Test Match. Well, he surprised everyone at the toss yet again and the internet has been in vibration mode ever since. Yes, he played KL instead of Dhawan and surprisingly Parthiv instead of Saha who had a niggle. It all sounded normal till here until Kohli dropped another bomb. 2 of them rather.
Not only did he not play Rahane yet again, he also dropped India best bowler in the last game – Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who let’s not forget was also quite handy with the bat. Apparently, they decided to go with Ishant due to more bounce on this pitch. Twitter has been quite angry with the Indian Captain ever since as Kohli on one end has always maintained that they pick current form over the conditions and that’s exactly why he dropped Rahane. If that was indeed the case, why did he drop Bhuvi?
Having said that, Cric Crak honestly feels that there is a lot going on behind the scenes which we have no idea about and we would still like to believe in our very own captain Kohli. The Indian captain has made us proud on numerous occasions and we hope that he continues to do so. Does that mean I am happy that Rahane and Bhuvneshwar were dropped? Did Kohli do the right thing? I surely think they should have played but that’s just my opinion and we shall leave it to that.
