It is lack of patience for kohli, in this series he gifted his wicket most of the times by playing bad and unnecessary shots.
The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.
Hold on... thats just one inning.. that too after a long long time. MSD not at
all... Kohli lacks test temperament.
I disagree. He's played 14 tests, has 3 100s already and averages nearly 40. That's comparable to and even better than what players like Ponting and Tendulkar were at the same stage in their test careers. I believe Kohli has the skills to be a high quality test batsman.
I asked for alternative for India (Dravid is not going to come back!)....
There's no quick alternatives alternative. Btw we could try Laxman too. Ask him.

Playing Ranji will not help ... if thats what you are suggesting.
My idea's just develop strong test players. Both Dravid & Laxman saved many matches in past. Laxman is one of the best test players(but not suitable for ODI). I remember Aus team had two test players(Justin langer & Michael slater). And IIRC slater was stopped(out) at 90+ around 10+ times.
The problem with Gambhir is, his place itself is not secured forget about the captaincy. He currently need to get his batting form back. Only option can be of Kohli but he is too young to take this. we just need wait for another year and then reaccess if he can take this up.
Whatever you say as a captain Dhoni is not a failure. If you get a performance like what we saw in recent series nothing a captain can do. The problem with Dhoni is that he is not in his usual form but that is the case with 3 4th of the team. You cannot held only responsble for this.
