Rishabh Pant is all set to join team India to replace opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan, who injured his thumb against Australia on Sunday.
The reports earlier in the day said that Dhawan has been ruled out for three weeks, hence paying way for Rishabh Pant in India’s World Cup squad.
“Once all the details on Dhawan’s injury are out, the team management will put out an official request for a replacement. And that replacement is going to be Pant. The injury is bad enough to ask for a replacement,” sources were quoted as saying by TOI.
Pant is an attacking batsman who likes to go after the bowlers from ball one. Though how he fights with the pressure playing in a mega event life World Cup is something Indian cricket team would be looking forward to.
