Former India captain Saurav Ganguly has advised Iskipper Virat Kohli to have faith in the curent batting line and should not try to chop and change in every game.
Team management's decision to stick with Rohit Sharma while benching Ajinkya Rahane, who has a superior overseas record, has come under heavy criticism after India's defeat in the first Test in Cape Town.
Ganguly suggested that Indian team should not make any changes for the second Test which starts from Saturday in Centurion.
He said, "Virat Kohli should not worry about such things [team combination]," Ganguly said. "Although KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane have a good history of scoring runs away from the sub-continent and have better records as batsmen, India can't just chop-and-change in every game.
"They have shown faith in the current batting and that should continue in the next Test as well. They still have two more Tests to play and I feel all the matches will produce results."
