    If this Pant had played 2019 world cup India would have been in the finals. They didn't give him chance until that point.

    Problem was Dhoni and Kohli's muddled approach. He was ready to.give chances after chances to the likes of Karthik, Rayudu, Shankar, Jadhav etc but not Pant.

    Not difficult to see why Pant wasn't given preference in WC '19.

    Also, for all the talks of us wining WC under Dhoni in 2011, he was also directly responsible for us not winning the next 2 WCs which we could have won with all the talent at our disposal.

    Tests
    Rishabh (747): 7
    Rizwan (667): 17

    Odis
    Rishabh (432): 91
    Rizwan (367): 112

    T20is
    Rizwan (485): 47
    Rishabh (407): 68

    Only in Tests both are in the top rankings. However, in the longer run, I think Rishabh will be top even in LOIs

    In test matches Pant has played three memorable match winning innings.
    Something that many greats cannot claim to do in their entire career.

    We should have made both the finals. I think Australia in Australia would have been a different beast to beating England in England. But looking at the final where everything went England's way, Eng probably would have won that too. But two finals is the least we should have done.

    Not sure if that would have been more painful to deal when you add the CT final loss to Pak too

    Some Pakistan fans were talking about how great Rizwan was as a keeper and much better than Pant, well Pant has improved as a keeper and Rizwan dropped 2 catches in this series. You people are such a jinx.

    Fully expect Pants keeping to improve.

    The fact that some people were adamant that Rizwan is a better WK batsman or a better batsman in LOIs shows how clueless and cricket-ignorant our fans are.

    Rizwan is a very good WK batsman but Pant is several notches above him in all formats. He is GOAT material.

    Agree with you in this.Players of Pant style are rare.

    Nah, Saha WAS twice the keeper, but the improvement Pant has shown, the stunning stumpings and catches he has taken, now the gap is not that wide any more

    Saha should be compared to rizwan in keeping and not pant even if pant has improved.

    Rizwan is Watling level bat. Clutch bat and very good behind gloves.

    He will average close to 40 over the next 5 years and that should be good enough for a wicket keeper batsman.

    Pant's ceiling is very high( Gilchrist level) but let's see how far he can go. His batting has higher potential than even Gilly.

    Foakes is the best wicket keeper in the world. He wont get a game in LOIs for England. As long as your keeping is good enough, it's OK. Pant's batting is more valuable than Saha's keeping.

    Why would you mention foakes in Lols but not tests ?.
    And i agree than pants batting is more valuable than saha keeping but is it more valuable than rizwans runs and keeping in tests.

    Rizwan can provide support in Pak middle order. Pant can win games for India. Atleast that's the way it went so far. As far as Foakes goes, he played because Butler was rested in tests. As long as one is a decent keeper, it's enough. Batting prowess is critical too.

    I dont know why people keep ignoring that Pant has improved his keeping so much, he has been flawless in all recent match. They keep pretending he is still a below average keeper. In all recent series he out kept the regular keepers from the other side

    I'm guessing you haven't watched any recent Indian games. I know Sarf is a bad fielder and that's probably the reason but Rizwan's keeping wasn't considered mandatory when both he and Sarf played. At this level the difference is incremental. Pakistan team thought Sarf's batting was more critical than Rizwan's keeping. So the argument regarding Pant can die a miserable death now. Pant has been outstanding in the recent games and he will only improve.
