Former Australian dynamic opener Matthew Hayden feels that Rishabh Pant is the eventual fate of the Indian side and has supported him to come great over the long haul. Pant was excluded from the playing XI for the main T20I against Australia and Dinesh Karthik was preferred in front of him.
This had made a ton of mixed conclusions from the specialists as Pant hasn’t satisfied his potential yet in the T20I design.
He has scored 311 runs in 17 T20Is this year at an average of 25.91 yet consistency has been an issue for the 24-year-old. Adding to his troubles, the left-hander has found various ways of getting out lately and he oversaw only 51 runs in three innings in the Asia Cup 2022.
Matthew Hayden referenced that Rishabh Pant would be in his side assuming he was the selector and hailed him as the eventual fate of the Indian group. He felt that the southpaw ought to be upheld regardless of whether he neglects to score and added that the wicketkeeper batsman is unrivalled in each perspective.

“Rishabh Pant would be picked in every side if I was the selector. He is just the future. He needs to be backed and needs time. Even if it’s through runs or form, he should be there in my opinion. He is a superior player in pretty much every way and aspect,” said by Matthew Hayden
In the interim, India lost the first T20I against Australia by four wickets and it was the bowling division that ended up being an extraordinary dissatisfaction for the Rohit Sharma-drove side. Any semblance of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel surrendered a ton in the death overs and the objective of 209 was pursued down with four balls in excess.
The second T20I is planned to happen on September 23 at the Vidarbha Cricket Arena in Nagpur and it is not yet clear assuming Gasp comes to the playing XI.
