Should Virat Kohli replace Yuvraj in the Tests against WI?
Yuvraj is an accomplished player in ODIs but that does not necessarily mean he is good in the longer format and his Test record proves that. Considering the news of his lung infection, Yuvraj was not even match fit during the first two Tests. Virat may have had a poor start in the tour of West Indies but he deserves a second go since the players selected ahead of him haven\'t cemented their place. If Virat plays and repeatedly fails, then by all means the selectors and Captain are free to look for options. But give him a chance first.

“ Yuvraj has had his chances, spread over 7 years since his debut in 2003 to seal a Test spot. ”
“ Dropping a player without giving them adequate chances is no good for the team, captain and especially for players. ”
Monish Moorthy: But he hasn't been able to do it. At times he was injured but mostly it's simply because he is not a Test level batsman.With the tour of Australia coming up, we need to throw Virat in the mix and give him much needed long format practice as soon as possible. Yuvraj is the only passenger in the Test team at the moment and Kohli deserves his chance to play and seal a spot.
Nidhi At Rcb: This impatience with players is highly destructive, it keeps teams from building a strong core of experienced players, impedes transition plans and leaves the team weak and underexposed with no back ups. Yuvraj must continue to play, for this is his chance and he has earned it with his performances, including winning the Man of the Series at the 2011 Cricket World Cup.

Instead of experimenting with new players, India should play its well set players in the series ahead of the World Cup.
