After stepping down from the captaincy of the limited overs, now Virat Kohli has also resigned from the captaincy of the Test format. After Kohli relinquished the Test captaincy, Rohit Sharma is fully expected to be made the new Test captain of Team India. However, Little Master Sunil Gavaskar does not agree with this. Gavaskar believes that Rishabh Pant should be made India’s next Test captain.

Selectors will give preference to Pant
Sunil Gavaskar said- If you ask me, I will still see Pant as the next captain of India. For the same reason as Rohit Sharma was given the captaincy of Mumbai Indians when Ricky Ponting stepped down, look at the change in his batting after that. The sudden responsibility of being the captain helped him convert small innings into big innings. I think when Rishabh Pant gets the responsibility, he will get to see many more great innings like Newlands.

Pant scored an unbeaten 100 off 139 balls in tough conditions against South Africa at Newlands in the second innings of the Cape Town Test.

Pant’s record-breaking innings: Rishabh became the first Asian keeper to score the first century in Africa, also broke Dhoni’s record

Pant will follow the path of Pataudi
Sunil Gavaskar said that Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi also took charge of India at the age of 21 and also performed well as a captain. Former Indian captain said – Tiger Pataudi was the captain in adverse conditions at the age of 21 when Nari Contractor got injured. Look what he did after that. He captained easily. I think from what we have seen in the IPL with Rishabh as the captain of Delhi Capitals, I believe he has the potential to take Indian cricket forward and build a very exciting team.

Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi captained India in 40 Test matches and won 9 matches. In 19, the team had to face defeat and 12 matches were drawn.

10 matches won for Delhi
Apart from Gavaskar, many cricket experts are considering Rishabh Pant as the captain of the future. Pant also impressed everyone with his captaincy in IPL 2021. He won 10 matches while captaining in 16 matches, while the team had to face defeat in 6 matches. Pant is an important member of Team India in all three formats and age also supports him in the matter of captaincy. Rishabh is only 24 years old now. Rishabh Pant can be groomed as captain from now on for the future.
