Godfathers in BCCI or setting with Captains? 3 big reasons why Pant getting place again and again in Playing XI
The Indian team is currently on New Zealand tour. The Indian team has won the T20 series. All the young players are involved in this round. T20 series won 1-0 under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya. Team India will play ODI series on this round. Today i.e. on November 25, the first ODI match was played against New Zealand. In this match, New Zealand’s team decided to bowl first after winning the toss.
Indian team batting first scored 306 runs in 50 overs. Rishabh Pant’s performance in this match was very disappointing. Not only in this match, Rishabh Pant’s performance has not been so good in this New Zealand tour, even after that he gets a chance. So let’s know about it.
3 reasons for Rishabh Pant getting place again and again: –
1- The captain has faith in Rishabh Pant:
Rishabh Pant does wicketkeeping for India in all formats. He has the ability to single-handedly win some Test matches. The coach and captain believe that if he is kept in the playing-XI, he will prove to be the X factor for the team. Because he is a left handed batsman. And feeding them in the team creates a problem for the opposition team. But this factor of Rishabh did not work properly in this tour.
2- There is no left handed batsman in the middle order:
Another reason to play Rishabh in this match is that he is a left-handed batsman. He bats in middle order. Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson bat for the right hand in the middle order. Having Rishabh Pant adds a left-handed batsman to the middle order. Due to which the middle order of the team becomes stronger.
3- Rahul Dravid has a big hand:
Indian team head coach Rahul Dravid has faith in Pant. Rishabh Pant played brilliant innings on England tour. For which Rahul Dravid was very happy. And he said that having Pant in the team is like having a match winner. If Pant is in the playing-XI then it will be good for India. For this, Rishabh Pant constantly gets a chance in the team.
