New Delhi. The T20 World Cup has started. India will play their first match against Ireland on June 5. For this, the Indian team has also reached America. Team India will be in the hands of Rohit Sharma. Debate is still going on regarding the wicketkeeper whether Rishabh Pant or Sanju Samson will get a chance in the World Cup. Sunil Gavaskar has given his opinion on this. Gavaskar has chosen Rishabh Pant for this.

Sunil Gavaskar speaking on Star Sports said, “I think Rishabh Pant is a better wicketkeeper than Sanju Samson if you make a selection based on wicketkeeping. We are not talking about batting here. However, the player will be selected keeping his batting in mind as well. But Rishabh Pant has also batted well in the last few matches. Sanju Samson also had a great start to the IPL season. He was sending the ball out of bounds.”
