For the past few months, India have had the answer to the newly-brewing KL Rahul vs Shikhar Dhawan debate or the second opener owing to latter's injury or Rohit Sharma's absence. But when the first real test of the management came at deciding on the position in the batting lineup, skipper Virat Kohli said, "there's a possibility all three might play," implying the possibility of him going to No.4.

The very words take us back to Ravi Shastri's notion of Kohli as No.4 if need be, before World Cup to which the 31-year-old came forth with a 'anything for the team' response. "If that's the requirement of the team at a particular stage in the game or before a particular game, I'm more than happy to do it," Kohli said in Hyderabad, on the eve of the Australia series. "I've batted a lot of times at No 4, so I don't necessarily need to try it out because I've done that a lot of times in the past. My games doesn't change from No. 3 to No. 4 because the template is quite similar. In any given situation, I back myself to play the game that I know. If the team wants it at any stage, I'm more than happy to do it."
