True that. Rishabh Pant is massively overrated. The more I see of him, the more I cringe. Dhoni became Dhoni because his big hitting flowed smoothly and did not look like an ugly attempt at getting the accelerator going. Pant on the other hand looks ugly at this very young age. I do not see a very bright future for him with this gameplay. And yes, Samson is a way better bet/bat than Pant. Heck, even Parthiv Patel looks better for god's sake. You need safe keeping in tests. The world class standards have fallen, within the sport in general. These days with pitches favoring the batsmen a lot more and with the T20 influence showing in the scoring rate, the wicketkeeper in test match cricket is not challenged as much as he used to, even a decade back. If you have safe hands and are reliable with the catches, you are good for test level. I think Karthik and Samson tick those boxes (Parthiv, I think, has still not lost his butter fingers).
