World Cup 2023 – Adam Gilchrist ‘fascinated’ by Rishabh Pant’s positive impact on India

Rishabh Pant Former Australian wicketkeeper will not be fit to play the upcoming World Cup adam gilchrist He is still thrilled with the impact he has made in his six-year tenure with the Indian team.
25-year-old Pant made his debut in international cricket in February 2017 and has reached this milestone today. One of the first names on the team sheetEspecially in Test cricket. A strike rate of 73 in the longest format shows the kind of threat he poses to the bowlers and his performance against Australia – 274 runs in five innings, including a series-winning 89 at the Gabba – India Was key to one of the greatest achievements of: taking home Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2020-21,

“I think Rishabh has inspired a lot of wicket-keeper batsmen around the world to play in that (aggressive) way. It’s attractive for such a young player to have an impact like Rishabh, and other people are reacting and playing to that.” It has been in a positive manner,” Gilchrist, who is in India on a publicity tour, told PTI.

In Pant’s absence, KL Rahul There is a possibility of wicketkeeping for India in the World Cup. Ishan Kishan He also has experience behind the stumps but it seems his role in the first team will be limited to that of a middle-order batsman. Gilchrist was impressed with how Kishan has improved despite knowing that he was behind Rahul in the pecking order.

“They (India) are well stocked,” Gilchrist said. “He’s got some (wicketkeeping) options there, obviously, when KL was out because of his injury, Ishan Kishan took his chance and played really well, and now they find themselves in the team together, so it’s great to take that.” It’s a wonderful case of opportunity.

“To be positive, and then, force the selectors to keep you in the team (is impressive). It looks like KL will be the one to continue with the gloves, but that won’t hamper Ishan Kishan’s batting “He seems to be playing really well, carefree, aggressive and dangerous.”

Gilchrist picks his World Cup semi-finalists

There are less than three weeks left in the tournament, and won it three times, Gilchrist was asked to choose his final four. “I think India and Pakistan can be in it, Australia and England are the other two teams,” he said.
Gilchrist hopes five-time champion Australia will do well in India Bilateral series won 2-1 In March 2023. He said Adam Zampa, who took 0 for 113 and 3 for 70 in his last two ODIs in South Africa, would return in more favorable conditions.

“Australia will learn a lot from their efforts in South Africa when they come to India. They have three matches against India before the World Cup. So, they will have a full strength team there, which can tell us about where they are.” Little.

“Adam Zampa, in South Africa, was suffering a bit, but the conditions are different here in India with different pitches and he is a world-class spin bowler, and he has shown that, especially in T20 cricket , and now they get their chance in the 50-over World Cup. So it’s a very knowledgeable group and they have to use that experience against batting line-ups from around the world and play without any fear.”

There have been some suggestions about Australia sending David Warner lower down the order but Gilchrist is not a fan of it. “He (Warner) saw really good in south africa For the most part that’s what he did,” he said. “I think he has to bat at the top, there is some sort of discussion that he bats lower down the middle order but I think he has to open. He showed many times in South Africa that he is as aggressive and effective at the top of the order as before. So, I think he brings with him a lot of experience and a lot of confidence, and I think he should play at the top of the order for Australia and if he plays really well then our opponents will be scared of him.”
