Samson is the only backup. Can you fault the TM for selecting KL? Ishan is useless in MO. Who can replace Pant? 

Why should Ishan play in the middle order.Let him open and let Rohit bat at number 4., he is slow starter and is not giving any momentum to the innings.


Rohit is giving statements on how team should be flexible.Let that start with himself.
