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.
