Mohammad Kaif On Rishabh Pant: Indian batsmen Ishan Kishan and Dinesh Karthik impressed everyone with their scintillating game in India’s recent T20I series against South Africa. At the same time, stand-in captain Rishabh Pant could score only 58 runs in five matches and got out in the same way every time.
With the T20 World Cup being organized in Australia in October-November, head coach Rahul Dravid described Pant as an integral part of the team in the shortest format of the game. However, due to frequent flops in this format, questions are being raised about his being in the T20 World team or not.
Whereas, former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif, who has also served as an assistant coach with Delhi Capitals, believes that Pant could be a part of India’s squad for the T20 World Cup, but against England on July 7, 9 and 10. His return to form will be crucial in the T20 series to be played in Southampton, Birmingham and Nottingham.
Kaif said on Monday, “Pant will be in the team, but the tour of England will be important for him. Pant will have to get in form at the earliest, because very important months like the World Cup are coming and everyone wants to see Rishabh Pant perform at his best.” Huh.”
In IPL 2022, Pant scored 340 runs at an average of 30.90 and a strike rate of 151.78. Kaif, who has played 125 ODIs and 13 Tests for India, admitted that Pant is not in good form but has been backed by the team management to get back into form. Pant will now be seen in action during the Edgbaston Test from July 1 to 5.
Kaif said, “He is still learning, as he is 24 years old, so he has a long way to go, something that Rahul Dravid said that as you want a player with good skills, who is a good player for India. Pant has done this for India, so he has got management support.” India’s tour of England will be broadcast on Sony Sports Network from July 1 to 17.
