So whom did Rahane p**s off?
First Dhawan gets injured and the bigwigs call up Gambhir as backup. With everyone assuming that Gambhir will open and Rahane will set on the bench.
Rahane promises to shave his head at Tirupathi, and Gambhir is promptly diagnosed with jaundice. All seems well, except wait -- Raina is picked.
Seems reasonably safe, because Raina wouldn't be trusted to open in an ODI against Zimbabwe, let alone Australia in a Test -- except the latest buzz is that Pujara will open, and Raina will return at #6.
Hopefully, it is all rubbish and Rahane gets a much anticipated debut, scores a ton on debut and puts real pressure on the selectors,
