Shaw and Pant both had strong starts to their Test careers. But their careers have taken different paths since then. While Pant has established himself as one of the most destructive batters in world cricket’s longest format. Shaw has been absent from the Indian team following unfavourable tours to New Zealand and Australia in 2020-21.

Shaw scored a century on his Test debut against the West Indies. He followed it up with a half-century the next match. His last Test match came in December 2020 at Adelaide. Prithvi’s technique against in-coming delivery was determined to be suspect. Ricky Ponting’s prediction on-air as to how he will get out to Mitchell Starc had gone viral during the Adelaide Test.

Indian Cricket: Rishabh Pant Will Be More Successful As An Opener In Limited Overs, Virendra Sehwag

The young Mumbai right-hander, on the other hand, has amassed a large number of runs in domestic white-ball cricket, including the IPL. While his Delhi Capitals teammate and captain Pant has a Test average of 40. He has already scored hundreds in England and Australia, but his limited-overs performance has been disappointing.

When asked if Pant’s career path is similar to his, with less success in ODI and T20I cricket but enviable figures in Test cricket, Sehwag agreed. He believes Pant will be more successful if he opens in limited-overs cricket. Sehwag argued that in limited-overs batters don’t play to get 50 or 100 but to score quickly. So at number 4 or 5, Pant is thrust into situations that require more responsibility, but if he opens the innings he’ll be a lot more effective.

On both Prithvi Shaw and Pant, he said,

“Prithvi Shaw is a player who can bring back the excitement in Test cricket, Opposition will have to think if 400 would be enough with Shaw and Pant in our ranks. Shaw and Pant in one team could help India rule Test cricket, win the World Test Championship.”
