Rishabh Pant Dinesh karthik: The Indian team for the T20 World Cup to be held next month has already been announced. In this, veteran Dinesh Karthik has also been selected along with Rishabh Pant as wicketkeeper. But the difficulty is that these two are finding it very difficult to get a place in the playing-11 together.

After the Asia Cup, now in the series against Australia, there is also a problem for Team India that the young Rishabh Pant present in the squad should be given a place in the playing-11 or Karthik, who has got the title of best finisher, should be fed.

But in this matter, after former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, former wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist has also put his side. Gilchrist believes that Rishabh Pant should be included in India’s playing-11 in the T20 World Cup. Pant has become the favorite of the Australian legend due to his courage to dominate any bowler.

‘Pant should be included in the Indian playing-11’

Gilchrist told the International Cricket Council (ICC), ‘Rishabh Pant is a courageous and courageous player. The way he dominates any opposition bowling attack, I think he should be included in the Indian playing-11.

The former Australian wicketkeeper said, ‘Both of them (Rishabh and Karthik) can play together, but I believe that Rishabh Pant should definitely be in the playing-11.’ Let us inform that Pant has so far scored 934 runs in 58 T20 Internationals at an average of 23.94 and strike rate of 126.21, but he has not been able to achieve the same success as Test cricket in this format.

Interesting to keep both Pant and Karthik in playing-11

Karthik, on the other hand, has established himself as a finisher for some time now. But like former captain Ricky Ponting, Gilchrist also believes that these two wicket-keeper batsmen can be kept in the playing-11.

Gilchrist said, ‘If both of them are kept in the playing-11 then it will be interesting. I think he can do that. Dinesh Karthik can also play in the top order. He can also be used in the middle order and later overs. His game is really good.
