‘Business as usual’ for the Proteas in Durban
India need to focus in all departments ahead of second ODI, says Dhoni
CRICKET South Africa will press ahead with the playing of the second One-Day International in Durban, despite the government declaring tomorrow a day of reflection and prayer for Nelson Mandela.
Cricket SA said yesterday seven batsmen said De Villiers, though that isn’t the only scenario available to them were there to be a change to the starting team.
Imran Tahir would need to be accommodated too, and a change to the bowling is more likely at Kingsmead than a change to the batting order.
Dhoni, meanwhile, needs his side to show improvement in all departments if they are to get back into the series. “The bowlers have to do better in the next game and the batsmen have to mentally prepare themselves,” said India’s captain.
STILL A CHANCE: Proteas captain AB de Villiers has not dismissed the possibility of Graeme Smith playing in the second ODI against India tomorrow.
