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.
