India will have to choose between Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul, with back-ups Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan. Additionally, the wicketkeeper’s function has already been harshly criticized by former India captain Sunil Gavaskar. Team India has begun training for the ODI World Cup, which will be held at home the following year. This indicates that, with the exception of captain Rohit Sharma and third batter Virat Kohli, the auditions for each role have begun.
The function of the wicketkeeper is one of the most contentious subjects. India will have to choose between Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul, with back-ups Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan. Additionally, the wicketkeeper’s function has already been harshly criticized by former India captain Sunil Gavaskar.
During Rahul’s absence from the format, Pant has been India’s primary wicketkeeper.
Pant has scored 336 runs at 37.33 in 12 one-day internationals this year, including a century and three fifties. This year, Rahul has only played eight one-day internationals. In the first one, which he played on Sunday against Bangladesh, he scored 229 runs at 32.71 with two fifties. During Sunday’s Bangladesh ODI series opener in Mirpur, Gavaskar told Sony Sports that Rahul is an “all-rounder” and that his inclusion in the lineup helps India acquire an additional bowler.
He has been batting for India at No. 5, with Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli opening the batting the majority of the time. He has been batting at number 5 for quite some time. He might be looking to consolidate that position. That provides India with an additional option. You could take another bowler if you have someone in the middle order who can keep wickets.
Because he can keep wickets, open the batting, and bat at No. 5, I call him an all-rounder. In my opinion, KL Rahul is a versatile player. Pant, on the other hand, has taken a break from the ODI series for unknown reasons. Be that as it may, the youth will be back for the Test series.
