In white ball cricket, Virender Sehwag suggests a new batting position for Rishabh Pant. Virender Sehwag began his international career as a middle-order batsman. Then being promoted to open the innings, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Rishabh Pant, India’s wicket-keeper batter, has been through a lot in his relatively short career in international cricket. Rishabh Pant was identified early on as a potential long-term replacement for MS Dhoni in the Indian team setup. He did well to make the transition from age group cricket to the international stage. However, due to his aggressive batting style, he failed to deliver on several occasions, prompting harsh criticism.

But the Indian team management stuck with Rishabh Pant, and he came into his own in Test cricket. Scoring some match-winning runs, the most important of which came in Brisbane in January 2021. When India won a historic second straight Test series on Australian soil.

Since then, Pant has been a regular in the Indian Test team.

Rishabh Pant batting performances for India in limited overs formats have not been as impressive as they have been in Tests.

Pant bats in the middle order and is frequently call upon to be the aggressor late in the innings. However, there are times when he must bat in the middle overs to help build the innings. This goes against his natural attacking nature as a batter. Former India opener Virender Sehwag believes Pant can be a more valuable asset to India in limited overs cricket if he opens the batting.

“We don’t play limited-overs to score 50 or 100 runs, but to score at a brisk pace. Regardless of the situation or the opposition,” Sehwag says. “At no. 4 or 5, he will be put in situations that require more responsibility, but if he opens, he will be far more successful,” Sehwag said on Sports18’s Home of Heroes.

Sehwag began his international career as a middle-order batter before being promoted to open the innings, and the rest, as they say, is history. Similarly, India’s batting legend Sachin Tendulkar came into his own in ODIs after being given the opportunity to open the batting.

Pant has 715 runs in 24 One-Day Internationals and 683 runs in 43 T20 Internationals for India.
