Shardul Thakur – Rishabh Pant: Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar believes that Team India needs to make the next finisher after MS Dhoni.
Sunil Gavaskar: With the loss in the Tests as well as the loss in the ODIs, there is a lot of pressure on Team India right now. KL Rahul started his captaincy career with a defeat. Apart from losing the first two ODIs, Rahul also lost the second Test in Johannesburg. With this, the first overseas tour of Team India led by Rahul, along with Rahul, got off to a poor start. After the third ODI on Sunday, India will play their next ODI series against the West Indies on February 6. However, Rohit Sharma will be fully available for the series. He is ready to lead India in his first series as captain.
Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar believes India need to make its next finisher after MS Dhoni. For a long time, it was thought that Hardik Pandya would take on the role. However, Hardik, who is currently battling fitness issues, does not know how long he will play. Now it is questionable whether this all-rounder will get a place in Team India. Taking these things into consideration it is definitely time to think about TeamIndia Finisher Place.
Gavaskar said Rishabh Pant was the No. 1 batsman in two ODIs for India. Batted in 4th. Strengthening the middle order, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishab played an 85-run innings in the second match in Parliament on Friday. Pant No. 6 can be used best, ‘he declared.
“The middle order faltered after the excellent partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli in the first ODI. Pant and two Iyers (Shreyas, Venkatesh) failed to support the team, ”Gavaskar said.
“Pant has been playing at No. 4 in ODIs in recent times. There he mixed patience and aggression and failed to play. So it would be a good idea to use him as the finisher in No.6. He can use his bat at will without worrying too much about the situation, ‘he said.
Veteran pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar suggested focusing on his form. Bhubaneswar did not take wickets in two ODIs. The first two matches were disappointing with 0/64 and 0/61 respectively. “For some time now, Bhubaneswar has not been able to block runs in the last overs as before,” the former India captain said.
