MS Dhoni
Karun Nair
Risbah Pant
Sanju Samson


Want to put Rana in there now too.

Suspect we may see a Raina-Rana switcheroo in the India team soon enough.

Are we done with the Yuvi vanity exercise yet?

Sporadic with the bat, poor in the field and a host of young talent ready to take his place. The clock must be ticking.

top order looks ok for tests with either Vijay or Dhawan to open with Rahul, followed by Chet, Kohli and Rahane.

the big question is depth - in spinning conditions Jadeja and Ashwin add depth to the batting, but can we really pick them both in SA, Aus, Eng or NZ? Probably means we pick Ashwin and then we have 3 out of Bhuvi, Shami, Umesh and Ishant so does that mean we have a 6th batter (Rohit?) or do we stick with Pandya as an all-rounder?

Mumbai and Delhi will produce world class batters and most of Indian batting lineup is from Mumbai and Delhi.

Currently, Shikhar, Virat and Ajinkya.

Feel that Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari are now the next two cabs off the rank here.

Pant has got three score in the sixties in the India A tour of England whilst Vihari has impressed with an average of 51.26 in his eight innings.

Vihari played club cricket in UK 3 seasons ago for a side local to me called Hutton... scored 6 double hundreds and 3 big hundreds in 18 innings, and ran through sides with his part time off breaks....very good cricketer

Dhawan going through a bad spell but think they'll probably stick with him.

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.

India's batting line up and England's batting line up look equally awful atm

Atleast Joe Root is not biased like Virat.

He dropped Kuldeep Yadav after taking five fer and kept his RCB team mate Yuz for next T20 i who had failed in first T20i.
