Krunal should replace Hardik in the Asia Cup squad

That argument is flawed.

 

Vijay being a walking wicket does not make the suggestion of Rohit as test opener in SA/Eng any better. Rohit is not an opener in longer format, neither has the style of game nor the past performances to indicate he'd have any chance to succeed in those conditions at that batting position.

 

After Rahul and Dhawan if you have to think of another opener in place of Vijay, it has to be someone like Mayank or Prithvi who are openers and have been doing exceptionally well in that format and in that batting position.

Basic premise of the arguement is fine.

 

I have no problem with Mayank opening but the comparison was Vijay. I am all for giving chances to players who perform.

Not quite.

 

If let's say Dhawan loses his form badly in ODIs now and scores about 100 runs in the next 15 innings, he will have to be replaced. Replaced by Rahul/Prithvi/Mayank or even Iyer/Pant/Pandey/Karthik. Suggesting Pujara to replace Dhawan in ODIs would still be a terrible idea even if he'd be able to score more than Dhawan at that point.

First no one should get more than 2 to 3 consecutive innings. Once again the comparison was Vijay and Sharma. That was no brainer. Long term solution is Rahul and Mayank.

It's a no brainer to not even mention Rohit, opening, tests, Eng in the same sentence.

 

Irrespective of what's happening with Vijay or Dhawan or Rahul.
