Team India set to leave the UK on May 22. Before this, India has an issue with Kedar Jadhav’s Fitness. Jadhav injured during the IPL and he could not play playoffs matches. Team India will check Kedar Jadhav Fitness before going for the world cup. But some cricketers start to suggest the replacement of Kedar Jadhav. In a column of Times of India, Roger Binny said that Rishabh pant is the right choice as a backup of Injured Kedar Jadhav.
Roger Binny said,
“Fitness, as I say, is the key to India’s chances. I have noted that Kedar Jadhav is under a bit of a cloud. If he doesn’t get fit, I would go for Rishabh Pant. He is one of those players who can tear any bowling apart and win you games. Pant can change the course of a game in ten overs or half an hour. You need someone like him if you want to win major titles. He may come across as being immature in shot selection at times. But how does one learn? Only by playing more, earning your place in the team. He is a long-term investment.”
“The Indian team goes into the World Cup after what has been a long season. The good thing is that they have been playing some sort of cricket. Now the fact is that it may be construed as being too much at times, but that’s the way modern day cricket is. The challenge is to keep themselves fresh for the World Cup. One good thing is that the bowlers can be relaxed in the one-day game, unlike in a T20 format when a batsman is trying to knock you out from the very first ball. We had the Aussies before the IPL, so in a sense, it has been a long drawn out season. It is time for the Indian squad to regroup and most importantly aim to be match fit,” Roger Binny added.
