The Indian cricket team is certainly one of the strongest teams of the world despite the fact that it hasn’t won a single ICC tournament since 2013 whether it is in white ball cricket or red ball cricket. The Indian squad under Virat Kohli’s leadership played the finals of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship 2019-21 which it lost to the New Zealand cricket team that was led by Kane Williamson.
There is no denying the fact that future of the Indian cricket is very bright as there is a huge pool of talent. Recently, the former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag talked about the same and he was all praises for two young Indian cricketers.
He was talking about none other than Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant; both of them have a reputation of being explosive batters and Sehwag feels that with these two in the team, India will not only win the World Test Championship but also rule the world of cricket.
Sehwag further adds that with these two batters playing for the Indian squad, the opposition will think that even a target of 400 would not be enough.
Both Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant had a great start to their careers but as of now one of them has established himself in the team for all the three formats of the game and the other one has lost his place in the national team after dismal performances.
Rishabh Pant who is presently leading the IPL team Delhi Capitals has emerged as one of the most explosive batsmen of all times and he plays in all the three formats for the country. On the other hand, Prithvi Shaw scored a century on his debut but then after some disappointing performances, he was dropped from the team, the last test match Shaw played for India was in Adelaide 2020. Some former cricketers also pointed out a flaw in Shaw’s technique but the young cricketer has worked hard since then and has scored a lot of runs not just at domestic level but in the IPL as well.
Talking about Prithvi Shaw, Viru paaji states that he can bring excitement back in the test cricket. The former Indian cricketer also talks about Rishabh Pant who has already scored centuries in Australia and England. Viru says that a cricketer doesn’t play in limited overs to score a fifty or a century but to score at a good pace and if Rishabh Pant bats at number 4 or 5, he will have to bear more responsibility but he may be more successful, if he plays as an opener.
Well, there is absolutely no doubt that these two cricketers are very talented! Do you agree with Virender Sehwag’s perception about them? Let us know your views.
