Fans and pundits were left stunned after Rishabh Pant was surprisingly omitted in order to retain Dinesh Karthik in Team India's playing XI In the Asia Cup 2022 match against Pakistan, which the Men in Blue won by five wickets.

Pant was included against Hong Kong as all-rounder Hardik Pandya was rested.

Team India once again face arch-rivals Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 tie. And the speculation over who will make the playing XI after Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out has grown.

Whether it's Virat Kohli, KL Rahul or Pant or any other Indian star at the moment, everyone has their own opinion.

Pant too opened up on his views about the critics who question his batting style of taking high risks in pressure moments.

"I've got used to the fact that there will be harsh criticism even if I get a hundred in one innings and get out cheaply in the next one," Pant was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

He further stated: "I understand when I get out, it might look ugly. It doesn't mean it never pinches me. But I've learnt to embrace the fact that I play a high-risk-high-reward game."
