Ricky Ponting has full faith in Rishabh Pant's match-winning abilities and is hopeful that the talented wicketkeeper-batsman will back in the Indian playing XI during the ongoing series against New Zealand.
Pant, who suffered from a concussion during India's first home series ODI against Australia in Mumbai, is now fit but KL Rahul has done well as a wicketkeeper in both ODIs as well as T20 Internationals.
