While Karthik hasn't fired in the role of a designated finisher, Pant has been underwhelming in whatever T20I chances he has got so far.
Rohit Sharma said playing Pant against Zimbabwe was a tactical move, keeping in mind the semifinal, but the skipper was non-committal when asked who will keep the wickets on Thursday.
"Considering that we were not knowing which team we would be playing in the semis before that Zimbabwe game, we wanted to give a left-hander an opportunity to counter some of the spinners who bowled in the middle for New Zealand and England," Rohit explained the reason behind Pant's inclusion.
"And we thought Rishabh was the guy for us to go and give him some time, as well. But again, what is going to happen tomorrow, I won't be able to tell you right now," he said.
