i dont think Raina is good enough to survive such condition. He need to play more test matches against weaker sides (like Bangldesh or Zmbve) on difficult wickets . I personally feel Yuvraj is a better (than all other players on bench) player against fast bowling

I think Raina is a good ODI player. But for the test matches he is only suited for the subcontinent pitches. So I think we should persist with Pujara for some time longer. At least for this match Pujara should remain in the team. Cheers! Ram

Well, according to me raina cant be a test player. He does not have the potential to be a test player just like yuvraj singh. So he should not be given a chance again rather they should give pujara more and more chance to develope him. Happy mylotting. Regards, harry.

Raina needs rest for sure. He has got the test spot on a placid pitch due to injury to Yuvi & capitalized on the situation. However, he seems to be getting out the same way every time & not learning from his mistakes. Pujara has done enough to justify his spot for the next test series as well. Because Raina is more flamboyant in style he gets more than his share of limelight. Pujara & Kohli are better in temperament & technique than Raina. Dropping him from the squad will surely make him work harder on his attitude towards test cricket. all said & done , Raina is a great prospect for future provided he has work out his weaknesses.
