“(Rishabh) Pant is as good as Dhoni. He is a match-winner,” former Indian captain and present cricket board chief Sourav Ganguly told ABP Live Bengali today.
“He can take away the game from the opponents. He can play unbelievable shots. On his day, Pant can win matches for the team, be it test, ODI or T20.”
Pant made a scintillating 101 off just 118 balls in India’s fourth Test against England in Ahmedabad to help his team recover from 80 for 4 and take a big first-innings lead.
“Pant is a natural stroke player. He will play his shots. He can change the momentum of the match within minutes,” Ganguly said.
