Sunil Gavaskar stated, “If you ask me, I still see Pant as India’s next captain.” Look at the difference in his batting after Rohit Sharma was given the captaincy of the Mumbai Indians when Ricky Ponting stepped down. The sudden weight of responsibility that came with being captain aided him in turning small innings into big innings. I believe that if Rishabh Pant is given the captaincy, he will be able to witness many more great innings like the one at Newlands.
Pant hit an unbeaten 100 off 139 balls in the second innings of the Cape Town Test against South Africa at Newlands in difficult conditions.
Pant will follow in Pataudi’s footsteps.
Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, who took charge of India at the age of 21 and performed admirably as a captain, according to Sunil Gavaskar. Tiger Pataudi, a former Indian captain, said that when Nari Contractor was injured, he was the captain in difficult circumstances at the age of 21. After that, take a look at what he did. He was a natural captain. I believe that, based on what we’ve seen of Rishabh Pant as the captain of the Delhi Capitals in the IPL, he has the ability to lead Indian cricket forward and build a very exciting team.
Delhi has won 10 games in a row.
In addition to Gavaskar, many cricket experts believe Rishabh Pant will be the captain of the future. Pant’s captaincy in the IPL 2021 also wowed the crowd. He won 10 games while captaining the team in 16 games, while the team lost 6 games. Pant is an important member of Team India in all three formats, and his age helps him lead the team. Rishabh is a young man, only 24 years old. Rishabh Pant can be groomed to be the captain of the team in the future.
