Nah. Saha has got an MoM for two unbeaten unbeaten half-centuries (so purely for batting) against New Zealand on a green Eden Gardens track. Saying you can't rely on him for any runs is like saying Pant can't be relied on to take any catches (that is only true compared to Saha, not on an absolute scale).

I like Saha but I'm not sure if he has scored runs consistently enough to justify playing the extra bowler. Our batting looks thin especially with rahane at 5.

Jadeja is averaging 44 with the bat in the last 3 years. I think he can bat at No.6 in India atleast.

Mayank brings the same sort of mental attitude that Viru brought. While these two don't really have an attacking game to take on the short pitched stuff, they put such deliveries out of their mind immediately and don't half-ass it while going after anything in their half. And they absolutely murder spinners.

 

I think Mayank has cemented the opening spot for himself. Can end up with a career average of 50+ and 6k+ runs. SA and Eng are going to be the big tests obviously.

he can easily justify that 6th spot. Not only the  above stats, he emphatically showed that in the first test where he scored 30* & 40 from  top 6 positions too.The only obstacle is the morons in the TM.

Mayank viciously attacked Nortje who bowled a bouncer barrage at him at 140 k to 150 k on a pitch with some pace and carry.

 

He played 4 really good hook and pull shots, three of which went for boundaries. 

 

This forced Nortje to stop using too many bouncers.
