The Indian team management shocked everyone when Rishabh Pant was not included in the playing XI against Pakistan. The campaign opener of the Asia Cup 2022 saw the Men in Blue beating arch-rivals by 5 wickets.

Rohit Sharma-led team preferred Dinesh Karthik over Pant, and Rohit had termed it a tactical move considering the former’s performance in the death overs.

Jadeja, who scored a well-compiled 35, had to deal with the questions regarding Rishabh’s absence.

One of the journalists asked him – “Is Rishabh Pant injured? Why was he not included in the team against Pakistan?

Jadeja refused to reveal any details. “This question is out of the syllabus for me, and I have no idea about his exclusion.”
