Happy headache for Kohli as India ponder over Rohit, Vihari selection



After an extended period of limited-overs cricket, where they have for long struggled to find a stable No.4, India now have a middle-order confusion to contend with in Test cricket, too – but this one is because they are spoilt for choice.

Virat Kohli is yet to decide who between Rohit Sharma and Hanuma Vihari slots in at No.6 for the first Test against West Indies that begins in Antigua on Thursday, 22 August.

Both Rohit and Vihari fared decently during the Australia tour in 2018-19, but neither was exceptional. While Rohit scored a fifty in four innings, Vihari stood out for his gritty 66-ball 8, a knock that had earned him the praise of his skipper, in the third Test at the MCG, where he opened alongside Mayank Agarwal.

But with KL Rahul now returning to the Test fold and having the management’s faith, Vihari seems likely to be put down to No.6, making it a straight shoot-out between him and Rohit for a place in the XI.
