India will have to decide between Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, and KL Rahul, who is in rehabilitation right now, to replace Rishabh Pant.
Ishan Kishan has been selected by former India captain Sourav Ganguly to play wicketkeeper and bat at the upcoming Asia Cup and One Day International World Cup in India. India has not yet settled on its starting wicketkeeper-batsman for the major tournaments since Rishabh Pant is still recovering from injuries he incurred in a car accident last year. In his stead, India can pick among Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, or the injured KL Rahul.
Ganguly, on the other hand, has stated that Kishan is the batsman he would choose to keep the gloves for the sake of explosiveness.
While Pant is the greatest wicketkeeper in the country, both Rohit and Rahul will likely be considering Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul (if he is well enough to play) behind the stumps. Ishan Kishan is great because he makes it easier for all teams to compete. At the same event, Ganguly remarked, “I am sure Dravid will keep him in his plans.”
The Indian team, according to Ganguly, needs both seasoned veterans and promising newcomers.
Like Jaiswal, Varma, and Ishan Kishan, the team needs veterans with fresh eyes. They are free to play some brave cricket. It’s up to Rahul Dravid, Rohit, and the rest of the selectors to figure out who will make up the best XI, he remarked.
Kishan has appeared in 17 One-Day Internationals (ODIs), scoring 694 runs at an average of 46.26. In addition to his double century, he has six fifty-hundreds to his name.
Besides those two Tests, he has also participated in 27 Twenty20 Internationals for India.
