Summary

  • Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar believes that Shreyas Iyer should be given a permanent spot at the number 4 position and Rishabh Pant should be given the role of what MS Dhoni did for the side.
  • “In my view, Rishabh Pant is much better like an MS Dhoni at 5 for 6 as a finisher because that’s where his natural game and natural flair will come into play,” Sunil Gavaskar told the host broadcasters.
  • “If India get to a great start with Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma batting for 40-45 overs, then Pant at No.
  • But if it’s a question of batting for 30-35 overs, then I think it should be Shreyas Iyer at No.
  • That’s what Shreyas Iyer was doing with Virat Kohli at the other end,” he added.
