It can't be easy being Manoj Tiwary right now. Or Rohit Sharma, for that matter.
They have both said that they are friends, and wish each other success. That might be true, but at the moment, the two can't possibly share particularly good vibes. Tiwary must surely feel that Rohit is the Favoured One and is being given a rope too long - lengthier than Tiwary might have got if he had been in Rohit's position. As far as Rohit is concerned, though, it's a case of being in poor form, something every batsman is familiar with. What must it feel like then, knowing that his replacement is sitting in the dressing room?
Batsmen and bowlers lose form, of course, but usually they have entire series to find a purple patch. Or they are dropped, but not because there is a like-for-like alternative waiting. In a 15-man squad, there aren't replacements for everyone.
