KL Rahul is Main Wicketkeeper, Looking at Ishan..’: Saba Karim Backs Kishan’s Inclusion in ODI World Cup Squad

The race for the wicketkeeper’s role in the Indian cricket team has heated up ahead of the upcoming ODI World Cup. While KL Rahul has been performing exceptionally well as the main wicketkeeper-batsman, former selector Saba Karim believes that Ishan Kishan should also be included in the squad.

KL Rahul has been in tremendous form in recent times, not only showcasing his batting skills but also impressing behind the stumps. His ability to anchor the innings and provide stability to the team has been lauded by fans and experts alike. His inclusion as the main wicketkeeper in the ODI World Cup squad seems like a no-brainer.

However, Saba Karim argues that Ishan Kishan’s exceptional talent should not be overlooked. Kishan has been performing consistently in domestic cricket and has also showcased his potential in the Indian Premier League (IPL). His ability to score quick runs and explosive batting style make him a valuable asset in the middle order.

Karim believes that having both Rahul and Kishan in the ODI World Cup squad would give the team more flexibility and depth in their batting line-up. With both players capable of taking up the gloves, it would provide the team with more options depending on the match situation.

Furthermore, Karim highlights the importance of having backup options in case of injuries or poor form. The World Cup is a long tournament, and having an extra wicketkeeper in the squad would ensure that the team is well-prepared for any unforeseen circumstances.

While KL Rahul’s current form makes him the ideal choice for the main wicketkeeper’s role, Ishan Kishan’s inclusion as a backup option seems like a logical decision. His talent and ability to perform under pressure make him a valuable asset that should not be ignored. Ultimately, the final decision lies with the selectors, but it would not be surprising to see Kishan donning the gloves in the ODI World Cup.
