Rishabh Pant who brought into the Indian squad has a replacement to the Former Captain MS Dhoni and everyone thought he would be a perfect replacement for Dhoni in future.
On the other side, Rishabh Pant has the pressure to perform like the former skipper to keep up the hopes of fans and selectors. According to reports from TOI Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri, are trying to find a new replacement of Rishabh pant and Wriddhiman Saha can be one of them.
Pant is a satisfactory wicketkeeper but not proving himself with the bat. Both Wriddhiman Saha and Rishabh Pant are included In the Test squad against South Africa. Now it will be interesting to see who will be in the playing XI. A source said that Wriddhiman Saha might be given chance in Test series against South Africa.
The source said to Times of India, “The selectors are in a mood to give one final chance to Pant in the first Test, but the team management (coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli) want Saha to play from the start of the series itself.”
“The problem is, Pant’s lack of success with the bat is hurting his confidence while keeping wickets too. His DRS reviews aren’t great. In Indian conditions, on turning wickets, he may struggle. Saha is a far better ‘keeper than him, and get a few useful runs lower down the order too,” the source stated.
