First Test, India was in control at many moments on a pacy wicket of Cape Town but India lost. The second test, India again in control in a more familiar wicket, result, India lost. India tour of South Africa is not going to be what Virat Kohli wants from his team.
Indian bowlers bowled out South African batsmen in both innings of two test and so takes all South Africa wickets so they did a wonderful job so far. The main headache for Virat Kohli before the third and final test of the series is their batsmen who do not show character in this series so far.
Only Virat Kohli looks in control in the first inning of the second test and it was him because of which India close to the score of South Africa in Centurion test. But other batsmen fail to capitalise their chance in the series so far.

The Johannesburg wicket is expected to be the more quick and fast than New Lands. Although India record Johannesburg is a way to better and they never lost a match at the venue. India played four matches here won 1 and draw three.
Before the third test, the main headache for Virat Kohli is to play with a good combination. Team selection is very crucial and you can’t ignore Rahane in these conditions. Fielding department is other main concern for Virat Kohli.
India needs to step further and take the quick of South Africa with full confidence. Indian batsmen need to understand their role otherwise whitewash is not far away.
