Left spellbound by Rishabh Pant's blistering unbeaten century against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH), former India captain Sourav Ganguly said the Delhi Daredevils (DD) wicketkeeper-batsman will get to play for the national team in due time.
Pant demolished arguably the best bowling attack of the tournament in a sensational 63-ball 128 not out, the highest score by an Indian in IPL 2018.
"For Rishabh it will happen, he will get there... I think he is the future," said Dada.
The knock came two days after the 20-year-old was ignored from India's T20 squad for their tour of Ireland and England.
"For the likes of Pant, Ishan Kishan (who scored a 21-ball 52), time will come. They are young, there's no hurry. They will get matured as they play more games with time. They will play for India in the years to come. But having said that, consistency is important, hope it's not just one off. I was reading about Ishan Kishan after that knock in Kolkata... When you pick someone for the country, you look at consistency -- how many times does he keep doing that. Yes, T20 is different, opportunities are a lot lesser."
