During the India vs Australia, 1st T20I of the three-match T20I series that was played at The Gabba, Brisbane, Rishabh Pant played a shot during the T20 international cricket match.
Former Indian Skipper Sourav Ganguly has asked India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant to be more astute while playing his strokes. Ganguly said, “Rishabh Pant could’ve won the match for India with Dinesh Karthik. The way he was batting with Karthik and took the match close for India, the shot didn’t have any value,”.
Sourav Ganguly wants Rishabh Pant to learn from his mistakes, Pant was dismissed trying to reverse scoop a full ball over point and cover. His dismissal prevented India’s chase.
Australia won the match by 4 runs. Australia scored 58/4 off 17 overs due to heavy showers that prevented the last three overs. The revised D/L target for Team India was then raised to 174 off 17 overs.
Sourav Ganguly added that Pant is a young player and somebody needs to tell him that when he has the ability and power to hit straight, he doesn’t need to play these kinds of shots. He further told that he is not in bad form and he just has to change his shot selection which is not a difficult task to do. Ganguly is not concerned with his form.
Rishabh Pant was a part of a crucial partnership with Dinesh Karthik, which pushed India’s chase but his dismissal put the brakes on the scoring as India eventually fell short by 4 runs. Indian cricket team Captain Virat Kohli conceded after the match that Pant’s dismissal was the turning point in the chase.
India’s tour of Australia consisted of 3 T20Is which will then be followed by four-match Test Series starting from December 6 at Adelaide. The tour will end with three-match One Day International Series.
