He added that “this is his opportunity. If he gets a chance in these matches, he has to do better. We know he has the experience, so it becomes even more important.”

Talking about the upcoming T20 World Cup to be held in Australia later this year.Shastri said that “the void in the form of wicketkeeper MS Dhoni as a finisher in Karthik can be filled.” He said that it will have to be seen according to the requirement of the team. “What are they looking for? Do they want a keeper who can bat at the top of the order or someone who fits into the role of a finisher. I would go with the second option. You need a keeper who plays MS Dhoni’s role will do, and it should be.”

Rishabh Pant may already bat in the top four or five in T20 cricket

Rishabh Pant may already bat in the top four or five in T20 cricket. But you want someone who can finish the match. There are no finishers in the team after MS Dhoni’s departure. So I think there are great opportunities for him here. Karthik last played T20 International against Australia in 2019.
