The India Board of Community has recently announced the final squad of 15 members which will travel to Australia in October to perform in the T20 World Cup. This team is super stronger and we can anticipate a higher position for Team India in the T20 World Cup 2022.
The teams have such great batsmen like Captain Rohit Sharma, ex-India captain Virat Kohli, all-rounder players like Hardik Pandya and many more. The team also includes the great finisher Dinesh Karthik and also the fabulous cricketer Rishabh Pant, who stays in the top five batters of India’s squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The Indian team will play their first match of the T20 World Cup 2022 against Australia [the host].
The last update of the Indian team from the news reports discloses that the former batsman of India, Wasim Jaffer, does not much agree with the decision of team India to mention Rishabh Pant’s name under the top five batsman of the country’s team in the lead up to the T20 World Cup. Instead, they ignore Dinesh Karthik, who played a fabulous game in IPL 2022 and took RCB to the top position of the tournament.
It is totally the right of Indian selectors to choose what is right and appropriate for their country’s team, but it is a little bit disappointing that we ignore the most dedicated batsman, who deserves a better position, and I think we must give Dinesh Karthik the position of top five batsman, who played a great match as a finisher instead of Rishabh, who didn’t hit such remarkable scores in his previous tournaments, says Wasim Jaffer on ESPNcricinfo’s T20 Timeout.
What’s the position of Rishabh Pant in the T20 World Cup? He is the opening batsman and I don’t think that he will get the chance to do opening batting with the availability of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli. Instead of Dinesh, who is the true man of the T20 IPL series, Rishabh Pant had no great remark on his game. So, my decision is that selectors could give Karthik 4,5 position with respect to the Dinesh Karthik run records ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022, added by Wasim Jaffer.
