Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting believes Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant are competent enough hitters to be include in the same playing XI for the 2019 T20 World Cup. Ponting completed his five face-offs for the premier event in his current ICC assessment. One of them was the intense dispute about who should be in the starting XI. Should it be Pant, a potential bowling attack destroyer, or Kartik, the “designated finisher”?
“Long has the discussion in Indian cricketing circles rage about who should be the designated wicketkeeper-batter in the squad. While Karthik may brag about being a great finisher. Moreover, Pant’s extraordinary talent has earned him widespread support “Ponting wrote about it in his column.

Ponting feels it should be the way Rohit Sharma’s squad goes ahead.
Ponting praised both, saying: “I believe that both of these guys are on India’s greatest squad. I don’t care whether they’re both keepers; I believe their hitting ability is sufficient.”
“Rishabh in the middle order and Dinesh as a finisher. They appear incredibly dangerous to me,” the Australian legend said of their ability.
Ultimately, Ponting thought Pant an advantage over Karthik and that he would be given more opportunities.
“Look, I’m just going to favor Rishabh because I think he’ll have a few more chances than Dinesh. ” Stated Pant’s Delhi Capitals coach.
