Gautam Gambhir who has been leading the side since long will have to leave the reign as because a 19 year old Pant has been addressed as the captain of the team from now on wards
Pant made his debut for the team in the last T20 against England but has been smashing the Ranji season since the last few couples of week but the selectors have shown good faith on him and said that they were not finding any gripped person better than Gambhir over the years.
“Frankly Vijay Hazare is the last tournament of the season and this was an ideal opportunity for us to see who is the best candidate to lead the state side. We were not finding anyone all these years who could replace Gautam,” said Nikhil Chopra to PTI on the decision.
“The Hazare Trophy gives us opportunity to test Rishabh’s captaincy skills and with Gautam and other seniors around, he will get ample guidance from Gautam. Obviously Atul (Wassan) has spoken to Gautam and he has been taken into confidence,” said Chopra.
