𝕁𝕚𝕠𝕋𝕧𝕧𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕖 –The Test series is currently being played between the Indian cricket team and the Australian team. Where the Indian team had a tough defeat in the first match of Australia.
Team India scored the lowest score (36) of their Test cricket history in the second innings of this match.
In this match, the performance of veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha of the Indian team was very poor.
Saha could not do anything special in the two practice matches against Australia A even before this match.
Due to his poor performance, many experienced cricketers said that Rishabh Pant should replace Saha as a wicketkeeper in the playing XI.
In this episode, M.S.K Prasad, the former chief selector of the Indian cricket team, has also selected his favorite player as wicketkeeper from Rishabh Pant and Saha in the next three matches against Australia.
Former Indian cricket team selector MSK Prasad told PTI that Rishabh Pant should get a chance to replace Wriddhiman Saha in the second Boxing-Day Test match between India and Australia.
The same Prasad further said, see our committee at that time made it clear that Rishabh Pant is our first favorite player for England and Australia tour.
Only for cricket matches in India, we do not need to bat beyond number six. That’s why you can hire a specialist wicketkeeper there.
Wriddhiman Saha was dismissed for nine runs in the first innings of the first Test match against Australia and only 4 runs in the second innings.
Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian team, replaced Wriddhiman Saha as wicketkeeper in place of Rishabh Pant a day earlier. At that time everyone was quite shocked to see this.
The main reason for this was also that Rishabh Pant’s record on foreign land is much better than Saha.
Apart from this, Pant had scored a century in the second practice match against Australia A. This includes the 22 runs he scored in the last over of the match.
