KL Rahul is still recovering from his injury. Virat Kohli is creating a big question mark on his presence in the world squad. But Dinesh Karthik is seeming that he has concreted his place in the regular line-up. He had regained his place in the India team after his brilliant performances in the IPL 2022. And after rejoining the Indian side he continues his form. He is doing the finisher’s role very well and Ponting is expecting that he will continue with this in the world cup also.

“We have seen what Rishabh is capable of in 50-over cricket and I know absolutely what he is capable of in the T20 game. Dinesh Karthik has had his best IPL ever just very recently … and I would be trying to find every way to have both of those guys in my team. Rishabh to bat, in that three-four-five range, and have Dinesh and maybe Hardik Pandya … if you have those guys finishing for you, well that batting line-up looks very, very dangerous.

The presence of Dinesh Karthik will remove another player like Kishan or Surya or Shreyas. Ponting added more that he does not think that Surya is going to miss out. Surya has already proved that he is a complete player of T20I cricket. After that Ricky Ponting gave a bold statement. He said that he would like to choose Pant and Karthik ahead of Ishan Kishan. Ponting is preferring Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik because this duo will add depth to the team. After KL Rahul’s return, there is a high possibility that he will join Rohit Sharma in the opening. For that, there is a chance that Ishan Kishan may lose his post on the team.
