Virat Kohli should move to No.4 in Tests

“ There couldn't have been a better contender for the No.4 spot than Kohli. ”
“ There are many contenders to the no.4 slot ”
Shreya Ganguly: Sachin Tendulkar's retirement has paved way for Virat Kohli to step up and take the coveted No.4 position in India's Test side. With the team touring South Africa next, Kohli's promotion up the order will bring in more stability at the top. It will also give the No.5 batsman plenty of time to calm his nerves on foreign pitches. Kohli has earned the tag of "Mr. Dependable" through his performances in limited-overs cricket and it only makes sense to promote a relatively experienced batsman in unfamiliar conditions, ahead of a newcomer. Along with Pujara at No.3, Kohli can take his time to establish himself at No.4.
Vidula Menge: Virat Kohli is not the only contender for the no.4 slot, he is one of three between Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and himself.

Of these, Rohit Sharma could well be the most deserving contender. His average in First Class cricket stands at 63+ while his average in List A is below 38. The first chance he got in Tests, he burst out with two strong hundreds in back to back innings.

Kohli has more Test experience than Sharma but he took a couple of Tests to reach that level. South Africa is a new destination for both in whites, Kohli is well settled in his role at no. 5 while Rohit is hungry and in prime form so it would be easier for the latter to adapt to the move to no.4. Rahane has had the nerviest time in International cricket of the three of them so being a relative greenhorn, he should be cushioned in the no.6 slot that Rohit has outgrown so fast.

Coming 2 down is best for Kohli. He can balance his innings and can get the team out of trouble at times.

kohli is one of the best and sachin himself says kohli and rohit can beat his records
10 Dec 2013
yes because he is the second master blaster of india and also every time he enters a test he goes with 50 or 100

It is a very positive move considering that sachin has just retired and the no 4 position is vacant now.. It helps Virat Kohli further.

Yes!!! Virat Kohli should move to No.4 in Tests
06 Dec 2013
yup i agree with shreya virat is a perfect contender for no.4 after sachin because he is a perfect estimator of the situation and with an ample time if he bat at 4 he can stabilize and really can prove that he is master of all formats not only odi
06 Dec 2013
Yes defiantly

No.3 in ODI and No.4 in Test should best of best, since in present team Kohli is the best of best, he should be at 4.

I Accept your fact!! and Rohit looks quite calm and determined to become the next big thing after the big man in tests.. Virat might be the dominating in ODI's but when it comes to test matches Ro-hit Sharma has proved that he has the ability to hold his nerves and do exactly what the doc ordered.. playing at no.6 will surely wont provide him much time to settle while chasing in one point of view.. where as he can play peacefully and enjoy the game without the tension of chasing big totals he could come over the pressure which is at no.4!! At the end of the wire.. it is sure that Rohit is the future in tests.. if he bats at no.4 he could be the next big thing like tendlya.. if he bats at no.6 then no doubt he will become a 4th innings expert and the finest like VVS Laxman!!
