India's wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant can no longer assume his place in Team India as captain Virat Kohli's support of part-time wicketkeeper Lokesh Rahul has sounded alarm bells for him. Pant was getting the support of selector chief MSK Prasad, captain Virat, and vice-captain Rohit Sharma despite his recent poor performance but on the eve of Friday's first T20 match against New Zealand, Virat opened the press conference on Thursday. In fact, supporting Rahul created problems in front of Pant. After Pant's injury in the recent ODI series against Australia, Rahul assumed the responsibility of wicketkeeping and performed well behind the wicket. Rahul is already performing brilliantly with the bat while Pant's bat has been silent most of the time. Virat said that like the ODI series, Rahul will also be in the role of a wicketkeeper in the T20 series. If so, then Pant may have to sit out of the playing XI.

Virat said, "Given the kind of wicket-keeping by Rahul in the ODI series against Australia, he can be given a chance as a wicketkeeper in the T20 series against New Zealand. Rahul is the top-order batsman and India can field an extra batsman by landing him as a wicket-keeper. Rahul has the ability to bat on any order other than this. ”The captain's statement can be assumed that the captain's confidence in Pant's batting has been shaken. The captain said, "Rahul will start the innings with Rohit Sharma in the T20 series against New Zealand as Shikhar Dhawan is out of this series and subsequent ODI series due to injury." Shikhar replaced Sanju Samson in the team Inducted are good wicketkeepers as well as being aggressive batsmen. That means Pant has now got a double challenge.

Virat said, "One of the advantages of feeding Rahul as a wicketkeeper is that we can include an extra batsman in the XI. Some of our plans have been changed due to the injury to the summit. Therefore, Rahul will enter the opening in place of the middle order. If he does well with the bat as well then he can be given the responsibility of the keeper. It is a good thing that he accepts any role, whatever the team needs. He is the team man. "
