Kieswetter's wicket keeping spot under threat following poor show against India

London, Jan 21(ANI): England's one-day coach Ashley Giles has admitted that there will lot of head-scratching ahead of Wednesday's fourth one-day international against India, where wicket keeper Craig Kieswetter's position in the team could be in a spot of trouble from rival Jos Buttler.

As for changes, the batting line-up is under scrutiny after being bowled out for 158 and 155 in the last two defeats that now leave England trailing India 2-1 in the five-match series, the Telegraph reports.

Kieswetter is struggling at number 6 with the bat, with assurance ostensibly draining from his game.

Giles said confidence can go quite quickly out in cricket for any player because you get put under a lot of pressure very quickly, adding it's not fair to talk about one player's position, but he doesn't think anyone is locked into a team.

Giles added that things do change, but it's important he see everyone, and he added that this environment is great, with two months on the road here in India and in New Zealand.

Giles further said if his start had been New Zealand at home before the Champions Trophy then he wouldn't have had got to know the players warts and all.

The former England international also added that India is where you find out about people's trait, adding that Buttler is an incredibly talented cricketer along with Kieswetter and they talk about selection before the match. (ANI)
