Former cricketer Saba Karim has said that Ishan Kishan should be played in place of Pant for the four-match Test series against Australia as he too can bat like him. Ishan is yet to receive his first Test cap having already played for white-ball teams.

A four-match Test series will be played between India and Australia from 9 February to 13 March. These matches are very important for the Indian team as it will be necessary to win these matches to reach the final of the World Test Championship 2021-2023 edition.

While talking to India News, he said,
“I know KS Bharat is being groomed for the Test team. But as far as I feel Ishan Kishan is a better option as Pant’s replacement. Ishan Kishan can also do the kind of role Pant used to play. He is currently playing Ranji Trophy and has scored a quick century. We were winning Test matches only because of Pant because he was not only playing match winning innings but also scoring runs quickly. This not only increased the pressure on the opposition team but also gave Indian bowlers time to take 20 wickets.”
