Should Virat Kohli replace Yuvraj in the Tests against WI?

Verdict

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.

As Yuvraj is suffering from lung problems, it is convenient for Kohli to fill up his spot for now.

yes yes yes, i absolutely agree with this... a player after some years of playing must give chance for the youngsters who have potential just like virat... senior players dont retire themselves so der must b rule to retire after some years just like v have in govt services so that others get chance to play

virat is always a good player so he should be in team

Yuvraj Singh should obviously be replaced by Virat Kohli because in International matches, Virat performs better than Yuvraj comparatively.

yuvi is an experienced player. he has played long innings and showed that he can play test cricket. but against an inexperienced side such as the West Indies, i think virat should be given a chance. also india have sealed the series, and they should rest yuvraj for the upcoming all important australia tour.

Its good bye time for UV form Tests. He is very good for ODI. But Test matches deserve more skilled players.

Yuvraj is class..getting someone like Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma in at this premature stage of their careers is simply not done!Monish says Yuvraj got his chances but tell me one long stretch when Yuvraj has had a certainty in the starting 11?Read Arjuna Ranatunga's angle on this..he considers him to be a Brian Lara

i look lik virat himself and crazy fan .but still i go with yuvi .virat time will come as he is still young .
18 Nov 2011
i am a die hard fan of virat ! virat shuld get a chance bt not as Yuvi’s replacement!

I believe it should be Cheteshwar Pujara and not Virat Kohli in Test Squad because Cheteshwar Pujara is more experienced in longer format.
