India skipper Virat Kohli confirmed on Tuesday that wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha will keep wickets for India in first Test against Proteas on Wednesday at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam.

It seems that team management’s patience with Rishabh Pant is over as the news of him been dropped from the Test XI for South Africa comes days after India head coach Ravi Shastri had said he'll back Pant to the hilt.

Speaking at the press conference, skipper Kohli also confirmed Rohit Sharma will bat as opener, saying that the team management is no hurry with Rohit and he’ll be given enough time to find his form in the longest format.

"We are in no hurry with Rohit Sharma as opener. He will be given time and space to find his rhythm and the way he wants to play at the top," said Kohli.
