Arun Lal says Team India could benefit with Rishabh Pant as the captain

Former Indian cricketer Arun Lal believes that wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant should succeed Rohit Sharma as captain. Pant, who scored a magnificent century in the postponed Test in England, carried his fine form into the ODIs, where he got his maiden hundred against the host nation. His 113-ball 125* run knock guaranteed that India easily chased down the mark of 260 and helped his team win the series 2-1.

While Rohit is nearing the end of his international career, there are other candidates for captaincy, and Pant is surely one of them. He did captain India in the five-match Twenty20 International series against South Africa, which ended 2-2. The left-recent hander’s form has had a significant impact on India’s performances, leaving several pundits in awe.

Lal stated that Pant should be Rohit’s replacement as India captain, emphasizing the necessity of a skipper deserving of a spot in the top three. He emphasized Pant’s ability to withstand pressure, believing that a strong leader possesses similar traits. He came to the conclusion that Pant’s aggressiveness offers him an advantage over other players and that India will profit from his leadership.
