So according to your reasoning, we should ignore a player who has performed tremendously well off late (both with the bat and ball) in the domestic just because he didn't live up to the standards and expectations in other formats? Hmm, how to make 2 triple centuries in a space of 5 matches, get looked past? I think we should ask you.
And not to mention, he was a direct replacement for Yuvraj to fill in the AR spot. The other players you mentioned - Rahane, Rohit & Tiwary are not AR's, though Rohit & Tiwary can be given 3/4 overs in a session.
