The Indian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup was announced on Monday and there wasn’t any major surprises. A lot has been said about Team India’s new template in the shortest format of the game.
The latest to speak on the matter is former India opener Wasim Jaffer. In a tweet, he urged Rohit Sharma to promote Rishabh Pant as an opener. He also gave MS Dhoni’s example who allowed Rohit to open the innings, which changed his career.
“I still think opening the inns is where we could see the best of Pant in T20. Provided Rohit is ok to bat @ 4. MS took a punt on Rohit before CT in 2013, and the rest is history. Time for Rohit to take a punt on Pant. KL, Pant, VK, Rohit, Sky would be my top five,” Jaffer wrote in a tweet.
The southpaw has struggled in the middle-order and his shot selection has been questioned by cricket experts. He opened for two matches in England.
