Yes and no. I think the first test will simply see a swop-out of KG for Sipamla. Lutho has talent, but KG is most definitely the incumbent.The thing is, can we trust part-time spin to do a good job vs Pakistani batsmen in their own backyard? What if we drop mulder for linde? I know that's crazy considering how well mulder did vs Sri Lanka. I'd rather then bolster the batting and drop nortje then? Most importantly though, we must win the toss and bat first because what I've read is that the pitch turns a lot from day 4 onwards.
Pakistani pitches don't turn like those dirt holes in India do, so maybe we don't need a second spinner. Otherwise they need to look at dropping a batter. Not sure they will, but hey.
