There may not be an immediate threat to his position as the captain as his approval ratings could be still high but there is a vast difference between a 2-0, 2-1and a 3-0 series loss.

Virender Sehwag has once again trained his guns on Virat Kohli saying that now there is no one in the team who can stand up to the India skipper and point out his mistakes on the field. While the "sub-continental wicket" at Centurion was seen as India's best chance to draw level in this series, the green track here is also a fair opportunity for the visitors. Now after Smith, veteran India opener Virender Sehwag took a dig at the 29-year-old skipper, saying currently no one in the team could stand up to Kohli and point out his mistakes on the ground. Ajinkya Rahane was included in the playing XI in place of Rohit Sharma while pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar replaces off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. Leading into the Australia series we want to go into it with that momentum we have been gathering over the last two games.

Markram, on the other hand, will undergo a fitness test on Tuesday after suffering a mild quad strain during the Centurion Test and was unable to take the field in India's second innings. I don't see that in the current Indian squad.

Should Keshav Maharaj not be selected, then the Proteas will turn to either batsman Theunis de Bruyn or all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo. But it will be anything but easy as Faf du Plessis and his army have their tails up and are raring to go. The last Test match we played against India here was a fantastic Test match. "So, I have thought about those things as well ¿ how you can still keep the pressure on and not let the game slip away in very quick time", he said.

Talking about the Indian batsmen, who have come up short in this series, Kohli said: "We are looking to correcting our mistakes in these two games and intent is going to be a big part of it".

"We won't have our phones with us, so we won't immediately know what's going on", he said. Can India redeem themselves at Wanderers in Johannesburg and salvage their pride?

"It's been a pretty quiet series for a lot of them".

"They are a proud team that will not want to go down three nil and we are expecting a good challenge from them". The tour has also ended India's streak of nine consecutive series' wins since 2015.
