M.S.K. Prasad, leader selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has mentioned that K.L. Rahul's form in the Tests is a reason of challenge for the crew and the board would possibly have Rohit Sharma to open the innings in the 5-day format as properly.

Rahul controlled scores of forty four, 38, thirteen and 6 in two Tests towards West Indies; he wasted opportunities to convert starts offevolved in the first Test in Antigua and did not get starts offevolved inside the subsequent game in Jamaica. He hasn't managed a 50+ score seeing that his 149 towards England at the Oval twelve innings returned.

"As choice committee we haven't met after the conclusion of the West Indies tour. We will definitely take this (Rohit as opener) point into attention while all of us meet and discuss approximately it," Prasad advised.

"KL (Rahul) is in reality a first rate expertise. Of direction, he is going via a piece difficult time in Test cricket. We are absolutely concerned approximately his form. He wishes to spend extra time at the wicket and regain his contact and shape," he introduced.

Earlier, former captain Sourav Ganguly also backed Rohit for the Test opener's position and stated that the superstar batsman deserved an opportunity inside the longest format of the sport.

"I had recommended in advance approximately trying Rohit Sharma as an opener in Test cricket and I nevertheless consider that he needs to take delivery of an opportunity due to the fact he is too desirable a player to be ignored in the bloodless," Ganguly wrote in his column for The Times of India.

Former instruct and captain Anil Kumble had told Cricket next that Rahul is suffering as he isn't positive whilst to assault and while to defend.

"I think he appears to be in a bit of a mindset where he is not absolutely positive whether or not to assault whether or not to guard. He is unsure, you may see it in his footwork. I assume that is the hassle, it is all inside the thoughts, sure, there might be some technical issues but then if the thoughts isn't clear, if the notion procedure isn't clear, then that does not assist.

"Then your technical troubles get exaggerated. So, I think it is vital that he has a clean thoughts. The aid has been there for KL Rahul, I think he needs to start scoring runs in home cricket. Once he gets multiple hundreds in domestic cricket, then receives into a Test healthy scenario he's going to be loads extra assured.

"I assume it is a self belief difficulty that is there with KL Rahul, yes it truly is a function that probably there'll be a lot of debate before the following Test suit that India plays in, however having stated that, when you have received a Test collection you then may not move in until there is a alternative, you already know Prithvi Shaw is injured, so he's getting back from that injury as nicely so unless there may be a geared up substitute, I am no longer sincerely certain whether India can be looking at any person else."
