Former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer said he would choose Dinesh Karthik over Rishabh Pant for the first T20I game against Australia.
Before the three-match T20I series against Australia, the Indian team management must choose if they want to play both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik or whether there is only room for one of these two as the wicketkeeper-batter. This year, Karthik has shown his ability to conclude innings in style whereas Pant’s performance in the shortest format has not been great. Former Indian hitter Wasim Jaffer. declared that for the first T20I against Australia, Dinesh Karthik would be his choice rather than Rishabh Pant.
Jaffer believes Rishabh Pant does not belong at position 4 or 5. who added that it “would be the wisest thing” to exclude him from the World Cup.
Rishabh Pant must decide whether or not to participate, according to India. The Indian think tank has given Rishabh Pant a lot of attention. He has been terrific, and we have talked about how well he has played countless times. Test and ODI cricket have seen game-changing performances, but T20 international matches and even T20s have not seen any. “ Jaffer added on “T20 Timeout” on ESPNcricinfo.
“As a result, I think India must determine whether to keep Dinesh Karthik. Who, depending on the opportunity, has excelled since the IPL, whether or not they are in the top six. I don’t think Rishabh Pant belongs in positions 4 or 5. He spoke
Jaffer went on to say this about Pant: “His best choice would probably be to bat first. However, I don’t believe it will because KL, Rohit, and Virat will occupy the 1-2-3 spots. For the time being, I think it will be best to keep Rishabh Pant out of the World Cup.
Since his top score in that format was 52 against the West Indies in February 2022, Rishab Pant hasn’t produced much in the shortest format this year.
India squad for Australia T20I series: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul (vc), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav.
