Agency Nottingham: Young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was on Wednesday brought in as cover for the injured Shikhar Dhawan in India’s World Cup squad. Pant, whose omission from the original squad became a topic of heated debates given his stupendous form in the past one year, will reach here on Wednesday. His arrival will be a day before India’s game against New Zealand and he won’t be considered a replacement till the time the team management takes a final call on Dhawan’s availability for the rest of the tournament. “Rishabh Pant is being flown in from India as cover at the request of the team management,” a senior BCCI official currently in England told PTI. The 21-year-old is one of the most exciting players to have emerged in Indian cricket. He impressed with Test hundreds during the tours of England and Australia earlier and was in fine form during the IPL last month.
