Yuvraj Singh tweeted, “Absolutely! Reads the game well behind the stumps.”

Yuvraj Singh’s comments come after former India captain Sunil Gavaskar also backed Rishabh Pant as the next Indian skipper.

It’s going to be quite a debate as far as the selection committee is concerned as to who should be taking Indian cricket forward. First of all, it should be someone who is an automatic pick across all formats of the game. Once that happens, it will be a lot easier,” Gavaskar told India Today.

“If you ask me, I am still saying, I would look at Rishabh Pant as next India captain.”
