Rishabh Pant, who bats left-handed, is considered a “X-factor” by former national selector Saba Karim, who has stated that he would choose Rishabh Pant over Dinesh Karthik in the playing XI because he believes the left-handed batter will provide outstanding performances in the forthcoming tournament.
Fans from India and Pakistan are really excited for the match that will take place on Sunday in Dubai and is scheduled to take place as part of the Asia Cup 2022. When playing the team led by Babar Azam, all eyes will be on India to see what kind of batting combination they select to field. Rishabh Pant, who bats left-handed, is considered a “X-factor” by former national selector Saba Karim, who has stated that he would choose Rishabh Pant over Dinesh Karthik in the playing XI because he believes the left-handed batter will provide outstanding performances in the forthcoming tournament.
“Well, I could have just picked one wicketkeeper batter for my eleven, since if I include K.L. Rahul and Virat Kohli, then leaves me with the option of selecting only one player from Dinesh Kartik and Rishabh Pant. However, I went with Dinesh Kartik because I believe he is the better batsman. Rishabh Pant is such an X Factor for India, and I can see him delivering some stellar performances even in this Asia Cup, so I’ve decided to go with him. I’ve gone ahead with him because of this “remarked Saba Karim on the daily sports news programme ‘SPORTS OVER THE TOP’ that is broadcast on SPORTS18.
“A combination that enables me to field five bowlers capable of taking wickets is the one I favour the most. In addition to that, I have the option of bowling with Hardik Pandya as my sixth bowler. If I play with this kind of combination, then there won’t be room for two wicket keepers on my team, can you see why? “he continued.
Karim also mentioned that Suryakumar Yadav has the potential to play the role of a floater due to the variety he provides to the team. “Suryakumar Yadav is such a multi-dimensional player, I may keep him as a floater. I am able to move him up the order, and if my two openers bat for, perhaps, the seventh or eighth over, I will be able to bring in SKY. Because he is such a versatile player who can give me value no matter what number he bats, and because I’m looking at my 4-5-6 as floaters, I also have the option of moving him down the order in the event that this becomes necessary. Rishabh Pant will in point of fact be quite accessible to me.”
“Because I have the ability to do so, even if I have the feeling that I need to move a left-handed player up to the top of the order, I can do so. However, as of right now, I would place Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli in the top three positions in my rankings “he added.
“My top three batsmen are Rohit Sharma, who is also my captain, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli. And I’m going to put my money on experience to play well both against a formidable opponent like Pakistan and in a significant competition like the Asia Cup. I can appreciate that Virat Kohli has been having difficulties with his form. KL Rahul, I hope to see him get more runs, but I still have the feeling that both Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, if they put in 2-3 good practise sessions, I’m sure they’ll go back to form at the perfect moment for India, and I’d love to see him get more runs “he added.
