“Today’s performance will decide that”, Twitter reacts as Rishabh Pant comes in place of Dinesh Karthik for India vs Zimbabwe

India and Zimbabwe are currently involved in the final match of the Super 12 stage. For India, the only change in the XI was Rishabh Pant coming in place of Dinesh Karthik. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Rishabh Pant comes in place of Dinesh Karthik for the India vs Zimbabwe match.

Rishabh Pant comes in place of Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik has not enjoyed good form in the ongoing T20 World Cup. He failed against Pakistan and South Africa when he had a good chance to leave an impression. Even behind the wickets, DK has been unconvincing at times. Therefore, there were debates if Rishabh Pant can come into the XI. With Pant in the side, India can also have a left-hander in the middle order.

On the other hand, there are concerns about Pant’s form in T20 cricket. With DK playing the first few games, Pant’s confidence could have taken a beating. Hence, introducing him into the XI would have been a risk. The management has taken the risk of playing Pant just before a knockout game. It needs to be seen if this would come off or if DK would play in the semi-finals.


Twitter reacts to Pant’s inclusion

Pant is a popular cricketer and has already shown that he can be a good player in Australia. India has promoted Axar Patel whenever there is a requirement for a left-handed batter. However, Axar has not been able to justify the selection. Rishabh Pant is someone who can make an impact if he is in good form. He also has the habit of coming good in pressure games. India will hope that the youngster will remain in good touch ahead of the important games. Here is how Twitter reacted after Pant got a chance in the XI:
