Suprised that they have left out Mendis, i know he hasn't been in great form, but he is easily one of their best batmsen

There doesn't seem to be much international cricket this week, so this series is welcome. Hard to imagine it will be competitive though.

Great Vijay will be dropped for tomorrow test.
Question everyone asking which 2 openers would you pick for the game.
Seems like Kohli wants kl Rahul and dhawan,
Chopra wants dhawan and vijay and I want kl Rahul and Vijay.

You really can’t drop Vijay india best opener and kl Rahul is a huge prospect and a class player plus 7 consecutive 50s in row,

Only good thing is with having 3 openers India can change any time the combination and the current openers always have to score runs and contribute to stay in the team.
They can’t really score 30s and 40s then get out.
It should mean the openers getting better and better because of the competition, especially since openers is usually a hard role to replace in a test team, that and a number 3.

Is there a LH and RH combination for India?

Some spell from lakmal 4 maidens and 3 wickets making the ball talk.
Looks like Kohli definately needs a county stint.

With rainfall at Kolkata, top order collapse was expected.
I think we will be able to make a comeback though from this situation.

Dhawan is a leftie so that may be part of the thinking behind his selection. Personally my first choice for tests would be Vijay and Rahul
