Rishabh Pant Needs To Improve Consistency And Temperament, Says Virat Kohli’s Childhood Coach Raj Kumar Sharma
Time and again, the wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has faced critics after his performances in international cricket. Lately, Pant scored a power-hitting 71 runs in the 1st opener of the ODI series before Shimron Hetmyer caught him at the deep backward square leg. However, even after Pant and Shreyas Iyer took India past 250, the hosts were defeated by eight wickets by West Indies.
Nevertheless, Pants’ performance in the two ODIs against Windies has certainly helped him to prove his verdict in front of team management. Speaking on this, the childhood coach of India skipper Virat Kohli, Raj Kumar Sharma praised the young cricketer. However, in order to succeed in his career, coach Sharma said that Pant will need to be more consistent in his game.
Pant is a great player and he is a match-winner, praised Kohli’s coach
Ever since his debut in the international cricket in 2017, Pant has been on the selector’s radar and with MS Dhoni is not playing at present, he has been watched closely. However, the 22-year-old cricketer is yet to give more consistent performances in order to make a permanent place for himself in the national team.
Kohli’s coach, Sharma said that the wicketkeeper-batsman has matured and is a match-winner for the team, but he will need to get a hold of his temperament in the game.
“Pant is a great player and he is a match-winner but needs to improve consistency and temperament,” he said.
On the other hand, India will be preparing to win another series and keep up their winning streak. After having performed exceptionally in the first match and seemingly good in the series leveller, Pant will have to be at his best in the decider as well.
Meanwhile, Sharma said that it will be interesting how the Indian spinners take on Caribbean batsmen as Cuttack track in will favour the batsmen.
“It will be interesting how Indian spinner control Caribbean batter as Cuttack wicket will be tough for the bowler as it is a batting wicket,” he said. The two teams will lock horns in the series decider on Sunday.
