New Delhi: India had defeated England 3–1 in the recent 4-match Test series. After losing the first match of this series, India made a spectacular comeback to win the next three matches. Now India have to face England in the five-match T20 series. Rishabh Pant’s performance in the Test series was excellent, due to which he has also knocked the doors of the playing eleven of T20. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see if Pant gets a place in the team.
A fight between pant and rahul
Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul have a tough fight for the place of wicketkeeper in the T20 series against England. Pant has strengthened his claim by performing brilliantly in two consecutive Test series, but KL Rahul is also India’s biggest match winner in T20. KL Rahul is second in the T20 rankings as well. In such a situation, it is a big question in front of the team management that who should get a place in the team from either Pant or Rahul.
Batting coach replied
Who among Pant and Rahul will be given a place in the team, the statement of Team India’s batting coach Vikram Rathore has come. Vikram told ESPN Cricinfo, ‘KL has done very well as a wicketkeeper batsman. He is a great cricketer and has also batted well in the last few times. Also wicketkeeping as well. Pant has also returned to form and is doing well. Let’s see how things happen, team management is paying attention to it.
Plan told about T20 World Cup as well
This year the T20 World Cup is to be played in India. In such a situation, the batting coach has told about his plans. He said, ‘T20 World Cup will be held in India, so I want our batting to be set. By the time we finish this series, we will know what kind of team is going to play in the T20 World Cup. I think from now on, there is not going to be much change, because the team is quite balanced right now. But if any player gets hurt, it will be seen. The five-match T20 series between India and England will begin on March 12. All the matches of this series will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
