New Delhi: India has now lost their last three major series under Dhoni's captaincy including one at home, and the question pertaining to 'what now' was apt. Sunil Gavaskar favoured former cricketer Abbas Ali Baig's suggestion to make Kohli Test skipper but Atul Wassan was still circumspect.

England beat India at home after a 28-year-gap winning 2-1 in the Test series after the fourth and final match ended in a draw.

Gavaskar suggested that it is time the selectors look to the future now.

Gavaskar said,"Till the fourth day of the Nagpur Test, I would have backed Dhoni. Now that Virat has come up with a hundred under trying circumstances where he curbed his natural game, he discovered a good part about himself. He is ready to take on the mantle of Test cricket. That needs to be looked at in a positive manner by everyone concerned as that is where the future lies."
