Rishabh Pant 1st In Race To Replace Dhoni For Next Wicketkeeper!

Rishabh Pant is “Number one” in the race to take Ms Dhoni’s place as Wicketkeeper in Team India – said cricketer turned Commentator Aakash Chopra.

“Now that Dhoni is not there…[we] have Pant and KL Rahul [for white-ball cricket]…Wriddhiman Saha will continue as the Test keeper…[but] Rahul, I think, will establish himself as a pure batsman,” he added.

Former India captain and two-time World Cup winner, Mahendra Singh Dhoni announces his retirement from international cricket on Saturday (August 15) via his Instagram account.

The post read, “Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired (sic)”
