DK or Rishabh Pant? Ricky Ponting selected Team India’s wicketkeeper for T20 World Cup 2022
Australia is set to host the ICC T20 World in November-December. India’s performance in T20 World Cup 2021 was not special. In such a situation, Team India will make every effort to win this tournament this year. Meanwhile, former Australia captain Ricky Ponting gave his advice to the Indian team and said that India should pick both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik in the team for the 2022 T20 World Cup squad.
Ricky Ponting gave important advice to Team India regarding Rishabh Pant
Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting feels India should pick both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik in the squad for the 2022 T20 World Cup squad. Ricky said on the ICC review show, “We have seen what Rishabh Pant can do in a 50-over match and I know what he is capable of in T20 cricket. Dinesh Karthik has recently played the best IPL season of his career. I will try my best to have both of them in my team. Dinesh Karthik or Hardik Pandya, if you have such players to finish, your batting line-up becomes very dangerous.
‘I choose Rishabh Pant’
Ricky further said that Ishaan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav or Shreyas Iyer may have to sit out. Ricky further said, “If such a team is selected then Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav or Shreyas Iyer may have to sit out from the playing XI. Although the kind of form Suryakumar is in, I don’t think he will be dropped. But before Ishaan Kishan, I will pick Pant and Dinesh Karthik.
Rishabh Pant can be part of T20 World Cup squad
Let us tell you that India’s number one wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant returned to his form by scoring a century in the match against England during the recently concluded Men in Blue tour. Pant scored an unbeaten 125 off 113 balls in the deciding One Day International (ODI) against England. It is impossible for Rishabh not to be a part of the T20 World team after such a performance. Rishabh Pant is a strong contender for the wicket-keeper’s spot in the Indian T20I playing XI.
