Raina Comments on Rishabh Pant

However, former Indian batter Suresh Raina quoted that Rishabh Pant has an X factor that is needed for the team. And he Should play 1-2 World cup games in the World Cup for sure.

As an important player, he has done it in Australia. Also Scored a ton there, and won the Gabba test for us. He has an X factor because if you see from 1-6 there’s no left-hander batter. So how they are going to use him, It’s very important. He is a very good player and knows how to bat in pressure situations. Hopefully, the management must be thinking about how to bring him in So. In 1 or 2 games, you could see him playing again” Raina quoted

As Ravinder Jadeja is also out of the team for so long and not in the tournament due to his injury. One solid left-handed batsman should be there on the team’s playing 11. With Axar Patel in the place of Jadeja, Pant would be a better fit and can add more value to the team.

“I would say that having a left-handed batter in the middle would be crucial. We don’t have a left-handed bowler from No. 1-6, and I’m certain the opposition will have two or three left-handed bowlers. The roles that Gauti, Yuvi Paji, and I played have been witnessed by us in the past in 2007, 2011, and 2013. Yuvi Pa and I used to frighten the opposition when we played. Rahul and Rohit will now need to determine how to proceed. They must be deliberating it, but whoever they choose to play, we must prevail. Who may be the X element that you need to bring with Hardik? Being a left-hander, Rishabh would be better, in my opinion, Raina told PTI.
