IND vs AUS: As soon as Rishabh Pant was out, his place in the team was booked, Captain Rohit Sharma gave a big hint without naming him.
Indian team captain Rohit Sharma has said in the press conference that the team will feel the absence of Rishabh Pant, but at the same time he also said that we have people to play his role.
On the eve of the first Test match to be held between India and Australia, Captain Rohit Sharma has not revealed much about the playing XI. But he has hinted that he has players who can replace Rishabh Pant. Rohit admitted in the press conference that the team would feel the absence of Pant during the series. Please tell that Pant’s car had an accident in December last year. The vehicle caught fire within a few seconds of overturning. In which Pant narrowly survived. He is currently undergoing treatment in Mumbai, due to which he will have to stay away from cricket for several months along with this series.
Rohit Sharma said in the press conference on the eve of the match, “We will miss Rishabh Pant, but we have players who fit that role. We have had a good talk with our batsmen about their plan and hopefully, we will be able to execute it from tomorrow.
If we look at India’s squad, middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer is also not a part of the first match, in such a situation Suryakumar Yadav and wicket-keeper batsman KS Bharat can get a chance and the interesting thing is that both the players are waiting to get a chance in the Test. .

On the other hand, Pant is known for playing explosive innings in Tests for India and he is famous for turning the tide of the match with his innings, but in his absence, India can hand over this responsibility to Suryakumar. India also has Ishaan Kishan in the team as a wicket-keeper batsman, but because Ishaan is a top-order batsman, he can hardly score as fast as he comes down the order. But Suryakumar has experience with it in white ball cricket. On the other hand, Gill is also a top-order batsman, so his place at number five is unlikely to be made. At the same time, only KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are going to start the innings.
