“His presence in XI is obvious”: Jadeja supports the Indian star for “big games”

Hardik Pandya’s scorching form and Suryakumar Yadav’s aggressive shot-playing showed just how vital their impact will be in India’s T20 World Cup campaign later this year in Australia. But captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid still face the tricky task of finding the perfect team combination and assigning specific roles to players, especially when the tournament is around a month away. During the ongoing T20 Asian Cup which acts as a tune-up to the T20 showpiece event in October-November, India dropped Rishabh Pant for Dinesh Karthik in the highly anticipated match against rivals the Pakistan.

While Pant missed the opener, he returned for the Hong Kong game after the team’s management decided to rest the all-rounder Hardik Pandya. It remains to be seen whether India will face Pant in the Super Four stage, but Ajay Jadeja believes his presence is crucial in a top-notch collapse.

“His wicket keeping has definitely improved and I don’t think there is a batsman who has played like that in all formats,” the former India player said. Cricbuzz.

“India’s problem in ICC events has mainly been their inability to win big games after losing the Premier Order. But you need players who can step into such situations, so Pant’s presence in this XI is a no-brainer for me,” he said. added.

Pant enjoyed a rapid rise in world cricket in all three formats. He was also tried out as an opener on the recent England tour.

Former India wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel says the “game-changing” Pant needs to be in the XI as he adds a left-right combination in the batting order. In Pant’s absence against Pakistan, southpaw Ravindra Jadeja came on at bat in fourth place.

“You have to include Pant in this playing eleven somehow. He changes things. It also gives a left-right combination. There is no doubt about the ability of KL Rahul but the injuries he has suffered and the limited number of matches he has played puts doubts with the World Cup which is so close,” Parthiv explained. .
