Wasim Jaffer, who can be a part of the knowledgeable panel on CricTracker, backed India’s determination to play Dinesh Karthik forward of Pant because the latter has failed to hold his imperious contact from the longer codecs to the T20Is. However the former Indian opener felt {that a} lack of left-handed batting possibility within the staff can come again to hang-out them towards left-arm spinners.

“I believe it’s a robust name. So far as speaking about Check cricket and ODIs, he (Pant) is irreplaceable, the form of knocks he has performed lately is simply mind-boggling. However the identical kind hasn’t been there within the T20Is, even within the IPL. However DK, since IPL, has accomplished magnificently in his specified function. The one downside is that you understand, we haven’t acquired a left-hander in that line-up other than Jadeja. That’s the solely factor for me,” Jaffer mentioned when requested about Pant’s omission from the Indian staff for the epic conflict towards Pakistan.
