When MS Dhoni began his career, he was one of the most attacking batsmen in the world. But in recent years, his biggest problem has been his inability to score runs at a quick pace. Dhoni's strike rate at the start of his innings has been very low quite often. This has resulted in slowing down of the run rate in the middle overs and created extra pressure on the other batsmen.

Rishabh Pant can be the ideal solution for this problem, as he is one of the most devastating hitters of the cricket ball in recent times. His ability to hit big shots will help the side to increase the scoring rate in the middle overs, which is very important in a modern day ODI international match. He also has the ability to rotate the strike and takes much less time to get set compared to Dhoni.
