LahoreFormer Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has said that Rishabh Pant will surpass the achievements of MS Dhoni and Gilchrist. I have been following the Rishabh ball for the last 6-7 months. Inzamam said the batting of the ball in different positions was amazing.

The only other wicket-keeper batsmen I have seen in the last 30-35 years are MS Dhoni and Adam Gilchrist. They are two wicket-keepers who are able to turn the game around.

If the Rishabh ball continues as it is playing now, the Rishabh ball will overtake these two. Inzamam said the ball can go a long way ahead of them. Not that KL Rahul batted slowly. Rahul’s innings was beautiful. But the game turned out to be a 77-run performance off 40 balls. The difference was made by the ball and Hardik scoring runs in 9 overs, Inzamam pointed out.

Rahul’s century and the half-century of the ball and Kohli took India to a total of 336 in the second ODI. But Bairstow’s century and Ben Stoke’s batting of 99 put the victory in England’s hands.
