I would seriously re-think his position in the team. I agree, if he is playing it should be up the order or he doesn’t deserve a place in the team. Arun Karthik is a better bet.
Some of the local indian players who have not done much also seriously be thought if they can be dropped. No point carrying the baggage like Asad Pathan ( two strokes wonder), Abrar Kazi(dont see him getting any chances).
