Rishabh Pant in T20 World Cup: The Indian team has included two wicketkeepers for the upcoming T20 World Cup. However, there is every possibility that only one of these will be given a chance. There is a competition between Rishabh Pant and veteran Dinesh Karthik for this one spot. Veteran wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist believes that Rishabh Pant should be in India’s opening XI in the T20 World Cup because of his guts to dominate any bowler.
It has been a matter of discussion for some time that between Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik, who should be included in the playing XI. Australia’s legend Adam Gilchrist, meanwhile, supported the left-handed wicket-keeper batsman Pant. According to the statement issued by the ICC, ‘Rishabh Pant is a courageous and courageous player. The way he dominates any kind of bowling attack, I think he should be in the playing XI. Both of them (Rishabh and Karthik) can play together but I think Rishabh Pant should definitely be in the playing XI.
Pant’s performance not up to expectations
India has included both Pant and Karthik in the 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. Pant, however, has failed to deliver consistent performances in the shortest format, which could go against him while selecting the playing XI. Pant has so far scored 934 runs in 58 T20 Internationals at an average of 23.94 and a strike rate of 126.21 but he has not been able to achieve the same success as Test cricket in this format.
Karthik made himself a finisher
Talking about Karthik on the other hand, he has established himself as a finisher for some time now. Like former captain Ricky Ponting, Gilchrist also believes that these two wicket-keeper batsmen can be kept in the playing XI. Gilchrist said, ‘It will be interesting if both of them are kept in the playing XI. I think he can do that. Dinesh Karthik can also play in the top order. He can also be used in the middle order and later overs. His game is really good.
