"He is someone who has played a lot of cricket before, who knows the situation we are in, what the team needs, the requirements of Indian cricket. So you need a good, professional, high-level discussion.

"It will be a healthy discussion because I am playing currently and he has played before, there will be an understanding of these things. I have had good discussions in the past with him and I expect the same this time.”
