‘Will Playin All Three Formats’: Saba Karim Names Player Who Could Be India Next Captain. Pant captained Team India in a five-match T20I series against South Africa at home in June. Following the Indian Premier League 2022. After the final match rain out, the series was tied at 2-2.
Former Indian cricketer Saba Karim believes that star players like KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant could be the country’s all-format captain in the future.
“It’s still early days! I believe it is up to the selectors to first decide whether they want to have one player as an all-format captain, and if that is the case, you have several options. KL Rahul is ranked first because he plays all three formats. Number two is Rishabh Pant, who has been outstanding over the last few seasons “Karim stated this on Sports 18’s daily show ‘Sports Over the Top.’
“He has now developed into an excellent white ball player as well. As a result, you have two choices. But there are numerous other factors to consider. The first question is how long Rohit Sharma can play with his injuries. These considerations must also be consider. Are you interested in a young leader? If that is the case, then let us bring in Rishabh Pant, who is another player who will play all three formats in the coming years. So these are the options that the selectors must deal with “He continued.
Notably, both Pant and KL Rahul have now captained Team India.
KL Rahul led Team India for the first time in the second Test against South Africa in January 2022, as well as the subsequent ODI series. India, on the other hand, lost all of their matches. He returned to the national team as captain during the team’s 2-0 victory over Zimbabwe.

Saba Karim Names also please that the selectors stuck with Prasidh Krishna despite his poor performance in the West Indies tour.
“Yes, and if I recall correctly, he did not have a good outing against the West Indies in the ODI. It’s encouraging to see the Indian team management sticking by Prasidh Krishna, which has been a hallmark of this new setup. Once they trust a player, they want to give him enough chances, which helps a player not to be afraid of failure, as we saw in Prasidh Krishna’s last outing “He stated.
“He did well because he could change his length. That wicket of a Yorker against a well-established bat. That was very encouraging to see. For him, there is still a lot to learn. His track record outside India has not been particularly impressive because he is more of a hitting the hard length type of bowler, and in order to pick wickets while remaining economical, you must change your length. But I believe these are encouraging signs for Prasidh Krishna, as I am confident that the more he plays, the better he will become, and he will contribute to the rich pool of Indian pace bowlers that we currently have “He continued.
Krishna had a poor showing in the West Indies, taking only one wicket in two matches.
