Team India is going with continuous changes match after match. For the England series, they have tried different opening partners with Rohit Sharma and most surprising was young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant.

Pant opened the opening with the Indian Captain Rohit Sharma in the 2nd and 3rd T20I when they benched Ishan Kishan. Not only the fans but many former cricketers are also questioning the team’s combination and the new name in this list is former Indian selector and batsman Reetinder Sodhi.

However, sending Pant to open the innings did not work for India and now such experiments are increasing the headaches for formers as well. In the 1st T20I vs England, the wicketkeeper went on to score 26 in the 1st innings and then he failed in the 2nd T20I, where only 1 run came from his bat. Reetinder Sodhi has pointed that as middle-order batsman Pant is beyond imagination and he is an ultimate game changer.

While having a conversation on India News, Reetinder Sodhi said,” I am not in favour of Rishabh Pant opening. He is India’s pivotal player. India need him when the game gets tight in the 15th-16th over. You can better utilize him in the middle overs. He can take on the spinners and seamers as well.”

“I am not saying Pant cannot play the new ball, but India have better options for the top order. Ishan Kishan must open in all the four remaining games,” he further added.

If we talk about Pant, he was too good in the rescheduled test against England at Edgbaston, where he scored a brilliant century.
