Coach Rahul Dravid also wrapped up with Rishabh Pant, Sunil Gavaskar is asking this question after 2 losses


In the ongoing T20 home series against South Africa, the Indian team led by Rishabh Pant has lost two consecutive matches. The third match to be played in Visakhapatnam has now become a do or die for India. Earlier, the manner in which Team India performed in the two matches of the series is being criticized a lot. Along with this, questions are also being raised on the strategy of team captain Rishabh Pant and coach Rahul Dravid.

There was a ruckus on Rishabh Pant’s decision, especially in the second T20 played in Cuttack. In this match, he sent all-rounder Axar Patel above Dinesh Karthik in the batting order. Former India legend Sunil Gavaskar also expressed his disappointment regarding this.

Gavaskar said at the Star Sports program after the match, “The job of a finisher is not just to finish the match every time. He can also bat according to the circumstances of the match and he can also take the team out of difficult situations. If he can score runs for the team in the last overs, then he will also play the role of anchor.

“Sometimes when you are tagged as a finisher, all he thinks is that he will come out to bat after 15 overs. He cannot come in the 12th or 13th over. We have also seen this in IPL. Many teams send their big hitters in the last 4-5 overs so that they can play big shots.

Not only Sunil Gavaskar, former South African captain Graeme Smith was also surprised by the decision of the Indian team management. He said, ‘I have absolutely no understanding that when Karthik is one of the most experienced players in the team then how right it is to put him at the bottom of the batting order. You see how many matches he has played for India. You leave IPL. How can you send the first letter to bat before Karthik. I am shocked by this decision.

Let us tell you that in the second T20 against South Africa, the Indian team management had sent Akshar to bat first so that he could handle the innings. However he could not do so. At the same time, when Karthik came out to bat, his start was slow but in the last he batted vigorously and scored 31 runs in 21.
