India legend Sunil Gavaskar is mighty impressed with the way Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant have come in and impressed so early in international cricket.

Talking to India Today after India's 10-wicket win over West Indies, Gavaskar said, "Looking at the way Rishabh Pant has settled in the team, I wouldn't disturb the combination at all. He can be someone like Adam Gilchrist or Quinton de Kock to come down the order and if four wickets have fallen early, to take the game away from the opposition.

On Pant, he added, "His wicket-keeping is improving every day, the more he keeps wickets to Ashwin and Jadeja the better. He hasn't kept wickets to them before. He will get better with time and the more he keeps wickets to them, he will get used to their spin, varieties and he'll be that much better with every game he keeps to them,” he added to India Today.

Shaw was the man-of-the-series for 234 runs while Pant scored 184 runs, and was impressive behind the stumps.
