WC 2019: Sourav Ganguly backs Rishabh Pant for India's no 4 batsman

"Any of you want to chat to him about your mindset or anything... main man. Let's make him feel comfortable and welcome", Virat Kohli said as his teammates made a huddle around him and Sunil Chhetri.

Ganguly was recently appointed advisor of the rechristened Delhi Capitals. I don't think the players would put their body on the line. I had said (Cheteshwar) Pujara because he has been in good form.

"I've seen Rahul Dravid playing World Cup and excelling at number four and five".

"Pant or (Ambati) Rayudu could be an option".

Gautam Gambhir has questioned the T20 captaincy of his former Indian team mate Virat Kohli. What he has done with the bat in every format of the game.

"Rishabh is the sort of guy that can help you win the World Cup", said Australian legend Rickey Ponting. "I believe in one thing, as a player, when you get an opportunity, play, never say I don't want to play".

"If you look at last 10 or 15 overs - the second half or the final powerplay Virat is generally manning the boundary". Fourteen games... And he was probably the second highest run-getter in the IPL previous year. You can not compare him to someone like Rohit or Dhoni at this stage.

Well, with the football team doing its bit for the city, it is now up to the cricket team to play its role.

"Ishant is bowling his best at the moment, the way he bowled in England and Australia". If they score runs and win games for Delhi, then they will be rewarded with World Cup selection.

"It's not that he struggled..."

Sourav was convinced that the Delhi lad could be an asset for the Indian team in the near future.

"I'd play him at number four in the Indian team".

Pant has not been as impressive in one-dayers, but Ganguly attributed it to his limited chances that came only when Dhoni was either resting or recovering.

Talking about Australia's World Cup squad he said that he would be surprised if Khawaja is not in the squad. "But I prefer No.3 for him". "He's just got that X-factor..." In January this year, Chhetri surpassed Lionel Messi to become the second highest worldwide goalscorer among active players. I don't think there should be any outside interference. "It's just that they have to be at top of the game", Ganguly said. Getting opportunities at the global level, at the IPL level, this will never come back, so find a way to get rest, find a way to stay fresh and keep playing. Even our generation played a lot of cricket. Yes IPL was not there as it came towards the end of our career but, cricket-wise, it was same. IPL is capitalism at its best.

"It is a fresh start for all of us".

"It'll be a good and competitive World Cup because the format is really good".
