Rishabh Pant, who entered the Indian T20 team in 2017, has played 54 T20 matches so far and scored 883 runs at an average of 23.86. His strikerate in this format is 126.5. There are also three half-centuries. On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik has been playing in T20s since 2008. Dinesh Karthik, who has played 47 T20s for India so far, has scored 591 runs at an average of 28.14. But his average in T20s is 140.05.
After last year’s T20 World Cup, Dinesh Karthik is in career best form. Most importantly, he finished the matches well and earned a reputation as a finisher. On the other hand, Rishabh Pant is still facing criticism for playing shots carelessly. More importantly.. even when the team is on the brink of victory, he does not change his style of play. There is a rumor that he does not value his wicket. If Pakistan have to finish the match at the crease in the last four overs? Team India management felt that Dinesh Karthik was better than Rishabh Pant.
Team India: Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvender Chahal, Arshadeep Singh
