5 possible replacements for MS Dhoni in the Indian team
- Grooming a replacement for MS Dhoni must be one of the priorities for the team management
If you thought if doesn’t get any more impressive than Rishabh Pant, 18-year-old Ishan Kishan from Jharkhand is an equally special phenomenon. He hails from the same state as MS Dhoni and thus seems a natural successor.
He belongs to the same category of modern day aggressive batsmen such as Pant and had a fabulous 2016-2017 Ranji season as well, ending with 799 runs in a special season for the Jharkhand side, as they finished runners-up.
Kishan is one who has handled leadership through his early days as well, and it was him who captained India at the U-19 World Cup in 2016, where they lost to the Windies in the final.Published 17 Jan 2017, 17:10 IST
