Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant: There is now less than four months left in the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October this year. In such a situation, the national selectors will keep a very close watch on the performance of the players in every T20 series from now on. This is because in every series the performance of the players will be compared to prepare the team for the T20 World Cup.
At present, there is more than one contender for the T20 team in India. In such a situation, it is not such an easy task for the team management to select 15 players for the T20 World Cup. The condition is that even the regular player of all three formats, Rishabh Pant, is also excluded from Team India, it will not be surprising. Actually, Rishabh is getting the biggest challenge from Dinesh Karthik. Along with wicketkeeping, Karthik is seen leaving Rishabh behind in his batting. Looking at international figures and recent performance, this seems to be the case.
Batting Average: Rishabh Pant’s batting average in T20 International is 23.15 while Dinesh Karthik is scoring runs in this shortest format of cricket with a batting average of 35.07. That is, here Dinesh Karthik is quite ahead.
Batting Strike Rate: Rishabh Pant has a strike rate of 123.91 in T20 Internationals, while Dinesh Karthik scores runs at a blistering strike rate of 146.13. That is, here too Karthik is ahead.
Wicketkeeping: In T20 Internationals, Rishabh Pant has so far taken 23 wickets behind the wickets in 48 matches. At the same time, Dinesh Karthik has sent 20 players to the pavilion in 37 matches. That is, in the matter of wicketkeeping, there is an equal competition between the two.
