I don't have the foggiest idea why they are addressing, possibly in light of the fact that you have to talk about something before the World Cup. I don't see Rahul accepting that opening as much as I respect him. His time will come and on the off chance that anything he is to a greater extent a remain by opener for me instead of the number four space," Hayden was cited as saying in the Times of India (TOI).

I realize individuals will be stunned by my case however on the off chance that you need a quality batsman who is superior to anything the alternatives India has attempted recently, I think Pujara is the best decision," Ganguly disclosed to India TV.
