Rishabh Pant makes huge statement on MS Dhoni’s future in Indian Team

Chairman of Indian cricket team selection Committee, MSK Prasad had recently made it clear in a recent interview earlier this week that two time World Cup winning captain MS Dhoni would remain India’s first choice in wicketkeeping in limited overs cricket till the 2019 World Cup at least. This comment by the chief selector more or less sealed the hopes of youngsters like Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson of making it to the Indian team ahead of their next world cup campaign.

“There is no comparison and I don’t see any wicket-keeper, who can even come close to him (Dhoni) in world cricket, leave alone Indian Cricket,”

Pant had said earlier in this week.

Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, is however less worried about the comments made by the chief of the Selection Panel on the next line of wicket-keepers to fill MS Dhoni’s boots, saying that his job was to go out there and score runs, no matter what. Despite not being in the best of form in the ongoing Ranji Trophy, the 20-year old has been showcasing glimpses of his talent in the last couple of years more than often and certainly has bright prospects looking into the future of Indian cricket.

Pant quoted, speaking to the Times of India at the close of the opening day’s play against Vidarbha in the Ranji Trophy finals.
