Australia vs India 2018-19: Rishabh Pant Credits the Presence of Ravindra Jadeja for Swashbuckling Knock
Indian National Cricket team wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant credited the presence of Ravindra Jadeja at the other end which provided him to play with freedom unlike other matches for his rollicking knock on day two of the fourth Test against Australia at Sydney. Pant shared a massive 204-run stand with Jadeja (81) as the former became the first India wicket-keeper to score a hundred in Australia.
Meanwhile, Pant failed to convert the starts he got in the last three matches Down Under. Speaking about his knock, Rishabh Pant added that nothing has changed in his batting.
“I don’t think anything changed from my side. The main thing was that I was playing with a batsman (Jadeja) this time. Most of the time, when I got a start, I was playing with the tail,” Pant said.
“If I am batting with the tail, I have to think differently because most of the time, I have to score the runs. But when you are batting with a batsman, that’s a different thing. You have seen it today,” he added.
Rishabh Pant, who smacked an unbeaten 159 off 189 balls revealed that his side had given him the freedom to express himself.
“The best part of my batting is that everyone in the team has given me the freedom to express myself. Every time when I go to bat, I just enjoy myself, that’s the only thing I love to do,” said Pant.
Learning new things every day
The young wicket-keeper also noted that he is learning new things every day. In addition to, this very process of learning and improving will continue till he plays the sport.
“Obviously, you can learn from anyone when you are going through a bad phase. It’s a learning process when you are playing cricket. Till such time that you are playing cricket, the learning process continues. If you use that experience and implement in the match, then the performances flow and you get out of the hard phase,” he concluded.
Australia is currently at 24 for no loss at the end of day two in reply to India’s first inning total of 622 for seven declared.
