The Indian squad has been working hard to be ready for the massive tournament that is scheduled to start on June 2 as the T20 World Cup 2024 approaches. There have been numerous conversations ahead of the event on India's top choice for the wicketkeeper position.
Numerous experts expressed their opinion regarding how India's choice for the wicketkeeper post may be star batsman Rishabh Pant.
Zaheer Khan, a former pacer, held a different viewpoint. Speaking about Pant's prospects of making the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, Zaheer expressed his opinion that he won't, even if he does well in the IPL 2024.
"If you see Rishabh Pant's journey, the turn he has gone through is not easy for any player. Firstly, everyone who is attached to cricket will be happy once he comes back on the field. He has a lot of hurdles to cross,” Zaheer Khan said in a discussion on Colors Cineplex.
"Firstly, he has to come back and play. It's not easy at this level. You need to get used to it and get the rhythm back. Those things might take time. It's great if it doesn't. However, keeping all things in mind, even if he has a very good IPL, I don't think the team will be thinking in that direction,” he added.
