It's time for India’s cricket fraternity to back Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant’s mental strength will be key as he deals with a rough patch — and realises sports is as much about failure as success. For motivation, he has to only look at Kohli & Rohit.

White-ball cricket: What are India's options in bowling department?

Show intent at the top
India, while batting first at least, has approached the T20 game much like the way they approach the 50-over format. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are champions of the 50-over contest and have time to up the tempo after settling in. They have done that time and again in the last few years.
Can India afford to have three slow-starters at the top?
If one of Kohli, Sharma or Dhawan gets set, they will either drag the game deep or finish it off. If two of them bat well, India will surely win the game. However, India’s T20 strategy needs to evolve keeping in mind the bigger grounds in Australia where power-hitting will be at a premium at the T20 World Cup next year.
