Pant should open – Karthik

who will open

When you have Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya, where does Rishabh Pant fit in the team?”

Needless to say about Suryakumar Yadav, he is the best player in the world.” Immediately we come to Pant at No. 5. Do we want him to bat there or let’s see if we can give him an opportunity to open.
