Shikhar Dhawan Gives Crucial Advice To Rishabh Pant On Handling The Negative Talks
The 22-year-old Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is currently struggling in international cricket. Though he is facing many criticisms from the outside, the youngster is getting huge support from the entire national team. Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, who is also from the same domestic team (Delhi) as Pant, is guiding the youngster on how to handle this critical situation.
The pressure is rising up on Rishabh Pant day by day due to his consistent struggling performances. While his performances are dangling continuously, he is facing more and more criticisms from the outside. However, Shikhar Dhawan is strongly backing the youngster like the other Indian team members and guiding him on how to handle this situation.
Dhawan has advised Rishabh Pant to not follow what the media is talking about him.
Shikhar Dhawan told IANS, “I keep telling him that don’t see what is being said or written about you in the media. See, the point is that whatever you see or read will come into your mind. I don’t read any newspaper. I have trained myself that way because I know that if I have done well, they will write good things and if I don’t, they will write that. It is a journey. When I started, I also saw, but that is how you learn. Rishabh is a great talent and he will do really well in the long run.”

He said, “Absolutely looking to get back. I am always on for Test cricket and when I get the opportunity (in domestic cricket) I will be playing. I will play Ranji Trophy when I am free. I will not sit at home. When I am not playing all the three formats, I will definitely play domestic cricket.”
