Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma

I haven’t made up my mind yet about either Rohit Sharma or Suresh Raina. They’re clearly talented; witness Raina’s spectacular near-hundred off 50-odd balls against the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. And Rohit Sharma, despite his inconsistency, still looks very complete: better technique, more formal, an explosive fielder. 

But my question is this: will Raina-Sharma turn out to be Yuvraj-Kaif, or Ganguly-Dravid? We’d obviously want the latter pair, but I’d hate to see either of them burn brightly only in the shorter formats without ever earning the respect players only can at the Test level. Who knows, though: they’re still young.

    Sharma definitely has it in him to be a top class test batsman. He will come into the test side ahead of Raina surely.. once either of Dravid, Laxman, or Sachin retire.. Raina, however I think is more of an ODI batsman..
