T20 World Cup 2024: With the T20 World Cup fast approaching, India has a lot of possibilities as to who among the 15-member team will make it to the initial playing 11. One area that will cause headaches for Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid is the selection of wicketkeeper. After selecting Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson as the two wicketkeepers, it remains to be seen who will make a place in the team. Now former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has given his opinion on this.

Gambhir Chose His Wicketkeeper

Gautam Gambhir said, “The quality of both is the same and Sanju has amazing quality, and even Rishabh has amazing quality. If I had to choose, I would probably choose Rishabh Pant because he is a natural middle-order batsman and if you see Sanju in IPL, he has batted at number three. I think Rishabh has batted at number five, six and seven.”

Gautam Gambhir further said, “Looking at the composition of Team India, we need a wicketkeeper in that position and not at the top of the order. So I will start with Rishabh Pant. Also, he is a left-handed player in the middle order, which gives you a left-hand-right hand combination.”

Sanju Samson Vs Rishabh Pant

Both Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant have seen excellent performances in IPL 2024. While Samson is taking Rajasthan Royals to the playoff stage of the tournament, Pant is performing brilliantly after returning to cricket after 14 months and Samson has so far scored 486 runs in 12 matches of IPL 2024 at an average of over 60. Whereas Pant has 446 runs in his name in 13 matches.
