Virat is a committed player and he brings this quality for his masterminded cricket. If yuvraj is not fit, probably Rahane can be given a chance or Manish pandey should certainly make the eleven. All the best to Indian team for semifinals against unpredictable west Indies
Rohit and raini and dhavan will play good innings but only after this world cup is over and in IPL. Raina will blast all the club bowlers of IPL to park and takes his average to more. He is badly struggling in this world cup. India was on verge of knock out every time we played Pakistan and Bangladesh and it was virat who rescued and even against Bangladesh he score some 25-30 runs? It means whole opposition team vs virat kohli in batting. This is not how team wins world cup...more than dhavan, rohit is looking completely out of sort.. in high scoring chase he made 17 ball 12 and got out...that too in world cup t-20..saving his energy for IPL..better give deserving one a chance
Many world greats including McGrath, shoaib akhtar, Imran khan and others said kohli always play when team india is standing on dead end. In comparison if you see under Ganguly captaincy india lost 11 finals and ganguly was blamed why india loose final hurdle and in finals Tendulkar record is horrible except for VB series and sharjah. Rohit sharma can be compared to Tendulkar as both failed to deliver when it matter most. Just look at Virat Kohli unbelievable batsmanship in all innings he never gave a chance. This takes something extra ordinary talent. Also India chances in semi and final is doubted because here in india only man is playing others like raina, dhavan and rohit sharma is giving complementary runs. The real batting of india starts from yuvraj and kohli and he takes india home from bad situation. What is the use of those top three guys. And jadeja batting capabilities is also doubted which leaves only virat kohli every time to produce gem. He cannot do it everytime along with yuvraj and he is bound to fail in semi final or final? Change is needed and average rahane must make way for struggling rohit or dhavan.

Rohit, Dhawan, Raina have no responsibility to carry on. They don't deserve to in team. Otherplayers Rahane, Negi are sitting withoutbeing played a single game. High time to play Rahane.

This a sensible n appropriate suggestion.In all the T 20 Word cup mateches these players have made no praiseworthy contribution.They should be dropped n players sitting in the bench should be included.All matches won by India is for Virat n Dhoni.Why should the non performers be insisted?
