India lost the first day of the four-match Test series against Australia on the third day. Team India scored their lowest score in Test history (36) in the second innings of this match. India’s wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha performed poorly in this match. Saha could not do anything special in two practice matches against Australia A before this match. Due to his poor performance, many former cricketers have said that young Rishabh Pant should be replaced in the playing XI in his place in the second match. In this episode, MSK Prasad, former head selector of Team India, has also picked his favorite player from Pant and Saha as wicketkeepers for the next matches of the series against Australia.
IND vs AUS: Gautam Gambhir said, who should the team replace Virat Kohli at number 4
Former selector MSK Prasad told PTI that Rishabh Pant should get an opportunity to replace Riddhiman Saha for the India-Australia boxing day Test. Prasad said, “See, our committee made it clear at that time that Rishabh Pant is our first choice for wicketkeeper batsman in England and Australia, whereas only for matches in India we need to bat beyond number six. There is no, so you can hire a specialist wicketkeeper there.

Saha scored nine runs in the first innings of the first match played in Adelaide, while in the second innings, only 4 runs came off his bat. When Virat Kohli gave Saha a place in the Adelaide Test playing XI a day before the match, everyone was shocked to see it. The main reason for this was that Pant’s record on foreign land is much better than Saha’s. Apart from this, Pant had scored a century while batting brilliantly against Australia A in the second practice match. This includes 22 runs he scored in the last over on the second day of the match.
