Former opener Virender Sehwag on Saturday stated that Virat Kohli "should drop himself" if he fails in the second Test against South Africa, launching a scathing attack on the India skipper for his team selection. India made three changes with KL Rahul replacing Shikhar Dhawan and Ishant Sharma coming in for in-form Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Parthiv Patel replaced injured 'keeper Wriddhiman Saha.

"Watching Virat Kohli excluding Shikhar Dhawan for just one Test failure, and Bhuvneshwar for no reason at all, Kohli should drop himself in the third Test, if he fails to perform in Centurion," Sehwag told India TV. "Excluding Bhuvneshwar wasn't the right decision. Citing that Ishant might benefit with his height, Kohli has hurt Bhuvi's self-confidence. They could have played Ishant in place of any other bowler," he added.
