Virender Sehwag has claimed that if Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw work on their strength and find their click, India could be unstoppable in Test cricket. Both the players have been a revelation for Indian cricket in the past couple of years as they have emerged on top with their performances. Sehwag went on to say that India could rule the longest format of the game if these two players perform while playing in the same team.
“He (Prithvi Shaw) is a player who can bring back the excitement in Test cricket. The opposition will have to think if 400 would be enough with Shaw and Pant in our ranks. Shaw and Pant in one team could help India rule Test cricket, win World Test Championship,” Sehwag told Sports18.
“We don’t play limited-overs to score 50 or 100 but to score at a brisk pace, no matter the situation or the opposition. At no. 4 or 5, he will find himself in situations that demand greater responsibility, but if he opens, he will be far more successful,” he concluded.
Pant has played as an opening batter for India’s Under-19 team back in the 2016 World Cup. He has delivered some remarkable performances as an opener in the past in the IPL as well.
