India has to play a crucial match against Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup on Nov 2nd at the Oval. But the men in blue has been facing a major concern in the form of Dinesh Karthik because his performance is not up to the mark in this tournament, and he has only scored 7 runs in two innings. Indian team management and skipper Rohit Sharma are criticized by some cricket experts and fans on social media. Cricket experts are suggesting Rishabh Pant as his replacement.
Joining the movement, former Indian Cricketer Madan Lal lashed out the head coach Rahul Dravid and Skipper Rohit Sharma for ignoring match-winner players like Rishabh Pant.
“Availability chaahe DK ki ho ya naa ho, main nehi maanta, mera khayal hai ki Rishabh Pant ko khilana chaiye. Aur agar usko apko khilana hai toh usse aap hausla dijiye. Itna bara batsman hai aur aap toss ke tarah upr niche kar rahe hai. Woh to khiladi hai, uska toh atmavishwas jayega hi. Sabko pata hai ki woh kitna bada match winner hai. Pant ko khilana hi padega chaahe DK available ho ya na ho (Whether Dinesh Karthik is available or not, Pant has to play. And give him that encouragement. He is such a big batsman and you are just tossing him up and down like a coin. He is bound to lose his confidence. We all know he is a match-winner. So, Pant has to play, whether DK is there or not),” he said.
India will try to win the match against Bangladesh to step ahead to the semi-final in the T20 World Cup 2022.
