Saha 0 Pant 7, who should play?

Recommended Posts

Saha any day of the week, and Sundays to spare.

 

He's by far the better keeper, in fact by an order of magnitude.

 

And given how the ball seems (as read on cricinfo) to be moving, I don't see Pant scoring enough over Saha to make a difference. 

 

Whereas I do see Pant dropping or missing a few, where Saha may even take a few blinders to even out the game. 

 

That's the call I'd take.

I'm not sure if that's enough of an advantage. 

 

I'd prefer the better wicketkeeper, which Saha is by far, and I'm not sure Pant brings enough in his batting to make up for the lack.

 

What we'll probably see is Saha in the first Test, and then a relook in the second basis what happens in that first one.

Pant obviously. I hate mediocres

Saha is one of, if not the best, pure wicketkeepers in the world right now.  Whatever he is, it isn't mediocre.  

 

And if we're using his batting ability to call Saha mediocre, well one could very well call Pant a mediocre keeper. 

 

There's no way either of them is mediocre IMO.

Yes very fair point.  However, is that 20 average difference between Saha and Pant enough to justify a dropped catch or missed stumping?  

 

I want t make it clear that Pant is the future and for my money I'd give him a long run in the shorter formats.  But not in Tests as of now.

as if saha cant drop or miss stumping , he can n he has to

 

we are assuming that pant will miss a lot which is not the case.....the logic works if the keeper was parthiv or conditions were india(where bounce become invariable) or england (where ball swings late) neither is the case here

he has been best in test only

 

I dnt get this future talk.....u keep a younger player on bench in name of future when a pressure game comes after years then ull say oh he has no experience....what is this conservative approach. Pant has already played in international test and done really well, he might fail but so does other. Pant is not the future but he is the present
