“In a world cup year, this is not a good move”, Twitter reacts as Rishabh Pant misses out in the India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 clash

Team India decided to select Dinesh Karthik ahead of Rishabh Pant for the clash against Pakistan in the Asia Cup. This met with different opinions as Pant is an important player, who had even captained the T20I team recently. Hence, Twitter was brimmed with reactions. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Rishabh Pant does not get selected for the India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match.

Rishabh Pant omitted from India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 squad

Ahead of the match, India had mainly one spot to worry about. Dinesh Karthik had been doing well in recent months but Rishabh Pant has not been in great T20I form. Hence, there was going to be a fight between the duo for the spot in the XI. However, since Pant is a left-hander and is the future of the Indian squad, it was expected that he would edge DK to the spot in the XI.

Now, in a surprise, Rohit Sharma and the management decided to exclude Pant and include Dinesh Karthik. The understanding could have been that Pant’s form in the middle-order in T20Is is not good but DK has been in stunning touch at the death. Moreover, with players like Suryakumar Yadav, who has a good range, the absence of a left-hander might not play a big factor. Ravindra Jadeja is anyways there in the XI if there is a requirement for a southpaw.

Most of the opinions centered around the fact that the dropping of Pant may not be a wise call. This is because he is going to be an important part of the XI in the future.
