Captain Virat changes from 5 to 4 bowlers theory.?

Virat achieves max Test wins by any Indian Captain on account of the pace attack best ever India had. This time around w/o Bumrah the win becomes all the more special. To their credit Shami and jadeja doing a swift job the SA end came earlier than the expected 5th day long slog for the Indians. Rohit\'s comeback to Tests with a bang is a good omen for Indian Test cricket given his level of talent and range of shots. Only thing is he should be consistent. Mayank Agaewal the youngster too appears to have made his mark. Pujara after a shaky start seems to be getting into the groove. Virat for some reasons does look somewhat distracted with bat. His field settings certainly were not the best and could have attacked more at the start on the 3td day. Coming to spin attack, Ashwin with 8 wkts and achieving the milestone of fastest 350th wicket, an opportunity denied in WI should boost his morale. Ashwin has to deliver better at crucial junctures when situation demands to win confidence of his captain both with ball and bat taking wickets regularly and scoring atleast couple of 50 plus scores with the tail in the remaining Tests at home. As things stand it is clear Virat seems to have changed to 4 bowlers from his earlier 5- bowlers theory and might not pick Ashwin for overseas tour as the specialist spinner preferring a pacer all rounder instead and a spinner in the form of Jadeja on whom the captain rightly has immense faith because of his all-round abilities.
