“Pant has a good chance with Hardik Pandya not being there,” Ashish Nehra feels confident on the experimental wicket-keeper

In the second T20I, Rishabh Pant may have a chance to demonstrate his batting prowess due to the unavailability of all-rounder Hardik Pandya, according to former India bowler Ashish Nehra.

It has been witnessed by the Indian fans who watch the Indian management being confident enough enough on Dinesh Karthik to prefer the experienced over the experimental Pant.


Rishabh Pant got an opportunity to play after spending a long time at the bench, since Hardik Pandya’s unavailability for the India vs South Africa tour.

In Nehra’s opinion, India will benefit from Pant scoring runs in the next matches leading up to the T20 World Cup.“I would watch out for Rishabh Pant. He is bound to be in the playing XI now, he has a good chance with Hardik Pandya not being there. He has been in and out of the team as of late. Now if he also scores runs, that will be another plus point for India,” Nehra said on Cricbuzz.
