Asia Cup 2022: Rishabh Pant vs Dinesh Karthik, who should play? Pant says ‘depends on coach and captain’
Pant or Karthik, who plays in Indian XI? There is no doubt about the competition, which exists. Both the players are match-winners on their given day and have the ability to change game in a matter of few balls.
However, Pant, who is regarded as one of the most entertaining wicketkeepers, believes that the two players do not think about the threat or the competition between the two.
“We don’t think on those lines. We as individuals always want to give our 100 per cent to the team. Rest depends on the coach and the captain and how the team could get an advantage from that.” Pant told Zee Hindustan.

There have been talks and suggestions from former players and alike, suggesting that the team management need to play only one. It helps in maintaining a balanced team combination.
With the T20 World Cup scheduled to be played in October in Australia, the Asia Cup presents India a wonderful chance to sort this issue. They cannot afford to make last minute changes before the ICC event, hence the upcoming Asia Cup and the other two home series against Australia and South Africa will be a good testing ground to finalise their XI.
