IND vs PAK T20: Pant has scored more runs than Karthik in T20 this year
Karthik’s strike rate better than Rishabh Pant’s
Dinesh Karthik performed well in IPL 2022. After this he got a place in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup (T20 World Cup 2022). In the tournament today, India is to face Pakistan (IND vs PAK). This is the first match of the current tournament for both the teams. Last year in the T20 World Cup, Pakistan made a great start by defeating India. Apart from Karthik as a wicketkeeper in the Indian team, there is also Rishabh Pant. It has to be seen whether captain Rohit Sharma gives a chance to either one in the playing-11 against Pakistan or both land.
Former legend Sachin Tendulkar believes that there should be a left-handed batsman in the top order. This maintains the balance of the team. If he agrees, then Pant should be given a chance. Talking about the top order right now, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are all right-handed batsmen. Former veteran Sunil Gavaskar said that both Pant and Karthik can get a place in the playing-11 only if the team comes with only 5 bowlers and Pandya takes charge of the 5th bowler.

If we look at the record of 2022 T20 International, Rishabh Pant has scored 338 runs in 17 innings. The strike rate is 137. Dinesh Karthik has scored 273 runs in 19 innings. The strike rate is 151.
