Alok Kapali should have gone with the A team to South Africa and proven himself there.
I fear for both of these players. They may never be heard of again if the get torn up by the Australians.
I really WANT to be wrong....
Your concern is valid as inaugurating a player in intl matches and giving chance to a returnee who barely played good opposition might backfire...the problem is national team middle order batsmen all lost their forms together (i doubt if they had ever better form than scoring 35+ runs) but now they barely can't even guarantee that. But new comers or replacements should be tried more in A team matches...we also have to think about long term planning
