He shined more than Sharma in LOIs down under!!!

      Its pretty clear that Mumbai Lobby led by Shastri, Manjrekar & Gavaskar (eventhough he was pretty vocal abt Nair's omission) is in favour of Sharma!!! Same applies for Pant!!!
      Personally, I feel it's not related to Mumbai lobby in any manner... It's more to do with something which we have been hearing for the past 1 year. For the past 1 year, Kohli and Shastri have been saying that this 'Team India' unlike the teams of the past, will be playing an 'aggressive' brand of cricket. We all know how aggressive Kohli is on the cricket field. He expected the same amount of aggression from his team members. At one stage this even resulted in he choosing Rahul in place of Pujara in the 1st test match in England (which is one of the biggest blunder made last year with respect to the team selection). The reason was that not long ago, Pujara was criticized for his low strike rate.

      Same in the case of Rohit Sharma as well. Hanuma Vihari got a chance in England, wherein he scored a fighting 50 i think against the likes of Anderson, Broad, Curran etc. It's no brainer that he should have walked into the team in the 1st match itself. But again, it's the so-called brand of cricket which they want rather than focussing on the individual strengths and what they bring to the team.

      However, in due course of time, I think Kohli have realized the importance of players like Pujara and Vihari and their contribution to this team which was seen from the manner he answered to the media questions post the test series in Sydney.

What mesage does a player like Karun gets when he sees Rohit Sharma ho hasn't done a thing in Test and always suspectible against good quality attack is playing in Test XI and playing rash shots. Sanju was in the LOI squad but wasnt given apt chances...See the way Pant is treated!!! Its a royal treatment!!! There is a clear and huge difference!!! MSK Prasad poolathe koothara players aanu selectors!!! Avante Test career adichu kootiya runs Karun Nair otta innings adichu kaanum!!!
      See, if you would remember... In the initial days, there was never a discussion of choosing between Karun and Rohit in the 1st place. The reason being, if you would remember.. In the debut series, Karun Nair came into the team not replacing Rohit but in place of an injured Ajinkya Rahane. Despite Karun making 300, Kohli had stated then and there itself that once Rahane is fit again, he straightaway comes in place of Karun and that was what happened thereafter.

      Secondly, you were speaking about Karun being affected by the selection committee and losing his confidence. That should not be the case of professional cricket. For example, take the case of Mayank Aggarwal. Mayank has been scoring tons of runs, again and again, season after season and has been knocking at the selection door for quite some time. Last year, under 19 boys won the championship and Prithvi Shaw (for the child prodigy that he is named by all) gets the attention of selectors and walks into the team in place of an out of form Vijay. Now, this should affect Mayank as he should feel devasted. But he goes back and waits for that one opportunity and when he got, he grabbed it. So, if they have the talent, they will get the chance sooner or later.

      Thirdly, I don't understand why the cry for Karun!! Personally, even I am surprised that Karun is not even part of the squad. But I am not that surprised over Karun not being in the playing 11. The reason is simple:

      1. Kohli has always been vocal about the importance of taking 20 wickets to win test matches. For that very reason, he likes to have 5 bowling options and that is the only reason why he has Pandya in the test circuit. So in Indian conditions, India plays only 5 proper batsmen (openers + Pujara + Kohli + Rahane) and then Pant, Pandya and 4 regular bowlers.

      2. Whereas, while playing in overseas, the lack of talent or tough conditions forces the team to change their balance a bit. In overseas, India has to go with 6 proper batsmen, keeper and then 4 bowlers. While India does back their pace attack to get us 20 wickets every game (That's how lucky we are to have them), that may not be the case every single time. So, Kohli and the team perhaps feel that they would prefer to add that extra batsman plus if he could also bowl a bit and that's the reason Vihari should be in the team before Karun or for that matter even before Rohit.

While all this may seem good to hear, things don' t usually work that way. We need to have at least 6 bowling options if not 7. The sooner he realizes the better it would be for the team.
