“You have to choose a fit man. How many more points does he have to score to prove himself? It is high time that the breeders chose him right away and gave him a good opportunity ”, Dilip Vengsarkar told The Times of India.

“He can also beat at No. 3. He has to be accommodated in the team. It’s not like Ruturaj 18 or 19 years old. He’s 24 now. There is no point in choosing him when he is 28 years old ”, he added.
