Speaking on Star Sports, Sunil Gavaskar said, “I think if you select on the basis of wicketkeeping, then Rishabh Pant is a better wicketkeeper than Sanju Samson. We are not talking about batting here. However, the player will also be selected keeping batting in mind. But Rishabh Pant has also batted well in the last few matches. Sanju Samson also gave a great start to the IPL season. He was sending the ball out of the field.”
