According to a reports in Indian Express, Gaikwad was initially added by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as a backup opener for the WTC Final, in which India would play against Australia. When Gaikwad told the BCCI he could join the team after June 5, Rahul Dravid immediately started looking for a substitute.
