Ever since the 2019 World Cup concluded for Team India, the national selectors, as well as the team management, decided to give Rishabh Pant a long rope across all formats. With MS Dhoni certainly in the last lap of his international career, Pant has been regarded as the one for the future.
Speaking on Pant’s road ahead, Team India discard and veteran all-rounder Suresh Raina told during the ‘Follow the Blues’ segment of this week’s episode of Star Sports’ chat show Cricket Connected, “I think Rishabh Pant has been amazing. He has scored a lot of runs for the country as well as in the IPL and in domestic cricket. He has got two Test hundreds. He played really well in T20s as well as ODIs.”
He further stated, “I think he is a gun player, he has a quality future. He needs to be really looked after by his teammates. And then you will see lot of great performances coming from him very soon,” added the veteran cricketer, who last played for India in 2018.
