ICC World Cup 2019: 3 Reasons why India must pick Rishabh Pant ahead of Dinesh Karthik
#2 Ability to Score Big Runs
However in addition to the big hitting ability, Rishabh Pant also has the ability to play big innings, as he has shown in his test career. On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik has always struggled to score big runs in his ODI career.
He does not even have a single century in his 90 match long ODI career. As both of them are most likely to play as specialist batsmen in the presence of MS Dhoni, it is better to have a batsman in the middle order who is not just a good finisher, but can also score big centuries.
Considering this aspect, Rishabh Pant should always be a preferred choice over Dinesh Karthik.
