Despite losing the first Test by 72 runs to South Africa, India opener Shikhar Dhawan is upbeat for a fresh challenge as the visitors seek revenge in the second Test, to be held from January 13 to 17 at Centurion.
"It's sad we lost the game! But it is important we stay positive and confident as a team.. looking forward to the next game," Dhawan tweeted on Tuesday.
In the first Test at Cape Town, the 32-year-old Delhi batsman lost his wicket for 16 runs in both of India's innings. Besides him, all the experienced campaigners from India failed miserably and South Africa sealed the Test to take a 1-0 lead.

The left-handed batsman opened India's innings with Murali Vijay at Newlands. In the recently released ICC rankings, Dhawan slipped three places to 33rd. Watching all this, captain Virat Kohli might pick opener KL Rahul for the Centurion Test.
