India have looked forward to MS Dhoni and gives chances to Rishabh pant in all three formats after the world cup 2019. Rishabh pant is doing well in the test, but in the limited-overs, his poor form is a concern for team India. He continues his poor form after the world cup 2019. Chief selector MSK Prasad said that we need to be patient with Rishabh Pant. But we have also been grooming backups across all formats.
“I have already said that post World Cup we have been concentrating on the progress of Rishabh. We need to be patient with him(Rishabh Pant), considering the immense talent that he possesses,” Prasad told the Indian Express.
“We are monitoring the workload of Rishabh. Of course, we have been grooming backups across all formats. We have the young K.S. Bharath doing well in the longer format for India ‘A’. We also have Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson doing well in the shorter formats for India ‘A’ and domestic cricket,” the chief selector added.
It is to be mentioned that Prasad had also indicated that it will be up to the Indian team management on whether they want to treat Pant as their first-choice keeper in Test matches or not. “It’ll be up to the Indian team management. They want a better keeper on spinning tracks at home,” Prasad had said when asked whether Pant was still the first-choice keeper or is there a case for Wriddhiman Saha’s return to the playing XI.
Currently, team India is playing a bilateral series against Sout Africa at home. India have won the second T20I of three-match T20I series while the first match was washed out due to heavy rain. The third and last T20 will be played tomorrow.
