Ricky Ponting feels that both wicketkeeper-hitters are in excellent condition, and having the two players in the group could help Team India,T20 World Cup
Previous Australia chief Ricky Ponting feels India ought to figure out how to incorporate both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik in their playing XI for the T20 World Cup. Ponting feels that both wicketkeeper-hitters are in excellent condition, and having the two players in the group could help Team India. While Pant has been in phenomenal structure in global cricket, Dinesh Karthik had a noteworthy Indian Premier League crusade with the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Ponting said that he would take Pant and Karthik over any semblance of Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan.
“We have seen what Rishabh is equipped for in 50-over cricket and I know totally what he is fit for in the T20 game. Dinesh Karthik has had his best IPL ever really recently…and I would be attempting to track down each method for having both of those folks in my group. Rishabh to bat, in that three-four-five territory, and have Dinesh and perhaps Hardik Pandya…if you have those folks completing for you, well that batting line-up looks extremely, hazardous,” Ponting said on ICC Review.
“Clearly that implies somebody like (Ishan) Kishan or Surya (Suryakumar Yadav) or (Shreyas) Iyer, that’s what somebody like, could pass up a great opportunity and I don’t figure Surya will pass up a great opportunity given his ongoing structure. Be that as it may, when you got such a lot of ability picking an Indian group is continuously going to be troublesome and Pant and Karthik would be the two, I would pick in front of Kishan at the present time,” he added.
India are at present in the West Indies to play three ODIs and five T20Is.
The principal ODI will be played later on Friday at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
