Opinion divided in team over Rohit's selection over Virat

Mahendra Singh Dhoni finds himself in a dilemma ahead of tomorrow's third Test at the Western Australia Cricket Association (WACA) ground here.

While the skipper wants to go with an unchanged team which lost in Sydney, it is learnt. Some in the think-tank want Rohit Sharma to be played in place of out-of-form Virat Kohli.

Some in the team management also feel pacer R Vinay Kumar should be included in the playing XI instead of off-spinner R Ashwin because of the green top at the WACA.

However, if India decide to go with an all-pace attack, there are chances of falling short in maintaining a good over-rate.

International Cricket Council match referees are hard on captains who disrespect over-rates and India have suffered from some anxious moments for this cricketing 'crime'.
