As Ishan Kishan is going through a difficult time, concerns have arisen over the selection of the perfect partner for Rohit Sharma. While Deepak Hooda who slammed an unbeaten 47 against Ireland may be a good choice, former India skipper Virat Kohli may also be a decent option. However, cricket pundits have suggested going with Rishabh Pant to open the innings.

“…Ishan Kishan has been India’s top scorer in the T20Is this year and Rishabh Pant is Rishabh Pant. Although he had a modest IPL, he will bring confidence to that hundred and fifty of the Edgbaston test . He can open in place of Ishan Kishan and can get quite a few opportunities at the top,“, Patel said.

Rishabh Pant has never opened an inning in T20I, however, the young hitter opened innings for the Men in Blue this year. Earlier in February, in the ODI series against West Indies, Pant decided to open the innings where he managed to score 18 runs. It was the first time that Pant opened an inning for India.

“The Indian think tank should think about opening with Rishabh Pant in T20Is. I think that’s where it can flourish. Wasim Jaffer said on Twitter.

“It’s not a bad option at all. It is a very good option. Look what Adam Gilchrist has done for Australia in cricket cricket. He used to bat at No. 6 or 7 in Test cricket, but open batting in white-ball cricket. He was destructive. Maybe someone like Rishabh Pant can be just as destructive. It could give so many overs to play,” Gavaskar said on Sports Today.

“We talked about him as a finisher but as a finisher sometimes he comes in there and starts slamming the ball straight away and goes out. But here he will have the awareness that he doesn’t have to do boom boom from the first ball. He has a few deliveries to get used to the rhythm and the movement. Especially when you play in England there will be a little more movement even with the white ball than anywhere else. This can in play in favor of India.
