The India would lose Rishabh Pant during the World Cup, said the former captain of India Sourav Ganguly.
Pant was not included in the 15-member World Cup team with stationary batsman Dinesh Karthik who got the nod. But the 21-year-old played a good race in the Indian Premier League for Delhi's capitals and helped the team reach the first playoffs.
"India will miss Pant at the World Cup," said Ganguly, capital adviser.
Asked if he should be enlisted with injured Kedar Jadhav, Ganguly said: "You can't say that, but we'll miss you."
On Rohit Sharma as captain after leading the Indians of Mumbai to a fourth IPL title record, Ganguly classified him as one of the best captains. "He is one of the best captains out there, both in Mumbai and in Chennai are formidable teams," he said.
Mumbai beat Chennai rivals of a race in the IPL final in Hyderabad.
