    I don't think these selections are surprising, neither do I believe that Kohli's being parochial or saving spots for his friends. 


    Kohli believes that he can win by going on the offensive.  'Going on the offensive' is his basic sporting philosophy. 


    To execute on his philosophy he will every time prefer offensive weapons over defensive ones. 


    Hence he will prefer Dhawan over KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma over Rahane.  Bumrah over most others.  Kohli wants Sehwag type players  in his Test team -  batting or bowling.


    You can disagree with Kohli's philosophy (I do).  You can say that ODI batting and bowling isn't the same as Test batting and bowling.  Just because Dhawan, Sharma and Bumrah can dominate ODIs doesn't mean they can be equally offensive in Tests.  Players like Sehwag come once in decades.  You can't take an ODI philosophy to the Test arena.  And so on.


    But I for one, even as I disagree with his thinking, can't fault his execution.


    One glitch : K L Rahul is aggressive batsman.

    I am hugely impressed with pandya's growth as a bowler but to expect him to keep it tight or take wickets in the middle overs is asking for too muche reason why we lost,spinners' appaling performance in the middle overs was one of major reasons for the defeat

    Spinners lost us the Champions trophy finals. Two of the three pacers bowled good. Only bumrah had an off day.
