Looking at Rahul's numbers, following his Test wonders against Sri Lanka, the Karnataka-based cricketer was selected in the five-match ODI series against the Islanders. But Rahul faltered with the willow, abysmally. Even in the one-off T20I against Lanka, all he could manage was just a score of seven runs.

Called in as a replacement for Dhawan, Rahane failed to live up to the expectation with a score of just five in the first ODI. But he bounced back with scores of 55, 70, 53, 61 – that helped his side to pick up that initial momentum. In fact, with four consecutive fifty-plus scores, he joined Kohli, Sachin and Gavaskar, who has a similar record to their name.

Well, for Rahane, he has indeed filled up the gap for Dhawan. In the absence of Rohit during the Windies tour, he had a similar record to his name – four consecutive fifties in the Caribbeans. But he missed his chances in the historic Sri Lanka series. And then again, in absence of another opener, he has a similar record.

Pandey remained the prime choice for Virat Kohli heading in for the Australia series, but he has so far done bare minimum to cement his place into the squad for the World Cup 2019. With scores of zero and three, Pandey remains a big concern for Virat and his plan towards a versatile squad.
