Steyn passes verdict on Rishabh Pant vs Dinesh Karthik for T20 WC: 'Good players learn from their mistakes, he hasn't'

16 years after his maiden T20I appearance for India, Dinesh Karthik put on a splendid act against South Africa in Rajkot on Friday to score his first ever half-century in the format which helped the hosts win by an emphatic margin of 82 runs and subsequently level the series. Amid Karthik's ravishing form in this ongoing series, Rishabh Pant, who has also been leading the Indian side, has shown signs of struggle. This has led to a freshly brewing debate on who should India pick for the T20 World Cup? When veterans had backed the 36-year-old star following his phenomenal show in IPL 2022, the primary question pertained to India's primary wicketkeeping choice. Pant has maintained the role post 2019 ODI World Cup with KL Rahul taking over for a brief period. Lately, the team has seen the addition of Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson. Karthik hence had to show his utmost skill to help India better at the area that troubled them for long - the lower middle order.
