CRICKET- Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar has questioned the selection of team for the second Test match against South Africa.

Shikhar Dahwan was replaced by KL Rahul and Ishant Sharma replaced Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Gavaskar said: “I think Shikhar Dhawan is the ‘Bali ka Bakra’ (scapegoat). His head is always on the chopping board. He just needs one bad innings and he is out of the team.

“I also don’t understand why Ishant came in for Bhuvneshwar when he had taken three wickets on the opening day at Cape Town. Ishant could have replaced Shami or Bumrah but leaving him out, I don’t understand.”
