Should India field the same team in the second Test?


India will be keen to carry their good showing into the second Test in Hyderabad and maintain winning ways in the four-match series.

They outclassed Australia by eight wickets in the opening match in Chennai, courtesy captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's maiden double century (224) and R Ashwin's superb spin bowling which saw him claim five wickets in both innings (7-103 and 5-95).

It will be interesting to see whether the winning combination is persisted with in the second Test, beginning March 2.

India have a problem, though, at the top of the order, both Virender Sehwag and Murali Vijay having failed in the two innings of the first Test.

Will one of them be replaced by Shikhar Dhawan?

Also, should left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha come in for Harbhajan Singh, who claimed just three wickets on a pitch that offered a lot of assistance to the spinners?
