This Player Will Lead India After Rohit Sharma, Aakash Chopra Makes A Bold Prediction

Nobody has any doubts about Rishabh Pant’s abilities when he is in form. The hitter, who is 24 years old, has frequently displayed his talent at the top level. He is a proven match-winner who has the ability to turn the tide of a match in the space of a few deliveries and claim the victory on his own. He has also accomplished it in the past, and that too in the most challenging form of cricket, namely Test cricket. The left-handed batter has established himself as the Indian team’s first-choice stumper in all three formats and has scored hundreds of runs in Test matches in England, Australia, and South Africa.

Even though Pant is a popular option, he has received criticism for his poor T20I performance statistics and lack of consistency. The young man has been chosen for India’s 15-man T20 World Cup roster, so he is expected to compete, but it is unclear if he will actually get to participate in any matches.

Dinesh Karthik, an experienced stumper who has seen his profile rise due to his outstanding performance in the IPL 2022, poses a danger to Pant’s position on the Indian side. Due to his skill at finishing, he is a member of the team and is probably placed above Pant in the batting order.

However, Pant will have a bright future in T20Is and may even take over as captain of the team in the game’s shortest format, according to former Indian opening batter Aakash Chopra.

Aakash Chopra on his youtube channel was asked about the future of Rishabh Pant in T20Is, “I feel the future will be great. He might become the Indian captain in T20 cricket going forward. He will be that maverick people will be scared of. He will play in a bold fashion.”

He added, “But at this point in time, the truth is that he is still figuring out whether he should do this or that, whether he should hit or play cautiously, whether he will get dropped if he gets out while trying to hit. He has done all of that, but this happens when you are young and extremely talented, and the expectation is that the guy will come and hit. So at times, he feels obliged that he has to hit but gets out while doing that. So it is a big problem.”

In 58 T20I appearances for the Men in Blue, Pant, who led India in five T20Is against South Africa in June of this year, has amassed 934 runs at an average of 23.94 and a strike rate of 126.21.
