Look at the quality of these names mentioned just in this page of the thread.....surely time for one of these.




I would not have Sanju anywhere near the test team. Even in the format he was expected to do well ( T20i and ODI) he has not lived upto expectations.

Karun Nair has played few tests. He has played for India A recently. Also he is part of Indian test squad for first 3 tests versus England. So he is always going to be the next man in case whenever couple of players need to be replaced or injured.

Rishabh too like Karun played for India A and he is also a part of Indian team. I guess he would be making a debut next test. His game too is suited more for shorter formats, but it's better to given him a chance and see.It's not tough to do better than how Dinesh has been performing keeping wise or batting wise.

Nitish Rana will have to wait longer and it's better he waits for now.

Prithvi Shaw will someday be making a debut. A Mumbai batsman so there is enough weight behind him apart from all the talk about him being next wonderful thing for Indian cricket. Having watched him, he has technical flaws in his batting. More of a Sehwag mould. He has to work on his off side shot selection if he gets picked in test format. Apart from that he is well moulded as he started playing cricket since age of 6 and his career has been well planned right from his school days.

Hanuma Vihari is one who is temperamentally more suitable for the test format. T20 and ODI isn't his strength. He has a very good FC performance, but then so many Indian batsmen have it. 2017-2018 was a stellar domestic season for him, being second top run scorer in Ranji behind Mayank Agarwal iirc. He also played for some local club in Hutton. He is a better option than few listed.

Mayank Agarwal putting his name in the frame with some big scores for India A and India B over the last few weeks.

From what i've seen Shubman Gill looks at least as good as, and probably better than Shaw so i'm a bit surprised his name is missing from the discussion.

Debut 50 for Vihari followed by a duck. Given it was a debut test and more so if context of runs being scored by Indians overseas recently is considered, it was a decent debut. Nair, another middle order batsman will have to wait now for a comeback in playing 11.

Vihari won't be looking forward to playing in Australia judging how he played the short ball in this game

yeah not sure about vihari short ball stuff as well, got dropped from the IPL squad because he can't face the short ball either and got found out earlier.
was a decent prospect as well when he first played ipl don't think he played ipl since 2013 or 2014 either.

frankly speaking if you are an indian batsman and you can't really find a side in the IPL then something is either wrong with your batting technique or they don't really trust you have the strokes or ability to score runs.
