    In my POV, 4 candidates are there as a replacement for Kohli for the first 2 test matches.

    1- Cheteshwar Pujara –

    Given his past record and recent performance in #RanjiTrophy. It also helps Gill to play at no 4. We all expect him to succeed post Kohli era.

    A genuine No 4 for India, and a proven domestic player. Someone, who is waiting for his opportunity for the last few years

    As per his last performance against Eng Lions, he did amazingly. As well, he received good remarks from former cricketers on his batting techniques.

    He has been in amazing form in the past year in the IPL and the international arena and has a proven domestic record. Can be handy on rank turners too & has experience playing with tail-enders for UP and A teams (wherever and whenever he played).

    It all depends on the think tank mindset! If they think that it’s just a 2 match story, they may go ahead diff. however, if they want to look into the future. Sarfaraz/Rinku must be looked into this time.

    Let’s hope for the best!
