The former Test batsman believes that despite the fact that KL Rahul has performed properly in white-ball cricket, that may’t be a parameter for changing Rahane in five-day format as the fashionable Karnataka batsman wants to attain closely in dmestic first-class video games.
“KL Rahul has been brilliant at number five. Yes granted, Rahane doesn”t look the same player he was in the first two years of his Test career and I would like to see that kind of form coming back,” Manjrekar stated in his YouTube channel the place he was answering questions posted by his twitter followers.
Manjrekar stated though Rahane has been getting some Test runs of late however the participant himself would ideally wish to be extra constant.
“It comes in little sparse, sometimes, but not as consistently as he would like. But based on his runs that he has got, I don’t think it is right to think of Rahul at number five in Test matches,” added Manjrekar, who performed 37 assessments.
As far as Rahul was involved, Manjrekar reminded his followers that the batsman wasn’t precisely profitable when he final performed Test matches within the West Indies.
“The final time he (Rahul) performed Test cricket, he wasn’t that spectacular and let’s not get too carried away with a batsman getting runs in T20 and 50 overs cricket and push into Test match cricket.
“So, (for) KL Rahul to nudge the Indian batsman on the check stage within the middle-order, he should get a truckload of runs on the home stage, identical to (Mayank) Agarwal did to get within the Indian crew,” he defined.
As far because the year-end Australia tour is worried, Manjrekar’s alternative for opening slot is Rohit Sharma together with Mayank Agarwal whereas Prithvi Saw in keeping with him could be the reserve choice. “The final time India performed a check match (in Australia), Rohit Sharma wasn’t accessible. Shaw and Mayank Agarwal had been the opening batsmen.
“And I thought, Shaw with the kind of technique that he has in those kinds of conditions, those pitches, a bit okay, actually more than okay,” stated Manjrekar.
“But if Rohit Sharma is fit and then he comes in… Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma actually would be the openers and Prithvi Shaw would be your second option,” Manjrekar stated.

Asked whether or not break up captaincy is one thing that India wants, Manjrekar stated, “Now, my idea of break up captaincy is that you do not go trying to have break up captaincy.
“So if you’re lucky to have a captain, who is sweet in all three codecs and nonetheless a great captain, then you do not want break up captaincy.”
“At the second, you could have Virat Kohli, who is great in all three codecs, so there is no such thing as a want for India to take a look at break up captaincy, there would possibly come a time sooner or later, who is aware of India would possibly begin in search of break up captaincy,” he defined.
He stated that India was blessed to have captains like Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kohli, and therefore there is no such thing as a have to have break up captaincy.
“If India come to a scenario the place they’ve a wonderful check captain and check participant, however not adequate to be in 50 over and T20, then possibly you could have a special captain.
“But, India at the moment are quite blessed and in the past as well, Dhoni was the same, when he was captaining all three formats, he was pretty good in all three formats,” he
