Wriddhiman Saha Backs Rishabh Pant Despite A Poor Show In Mohali
Just when things looked settled for Wriddhiman Saha in the International Cricket, he was struck with an injury, which saw him out of the Indian National Cricket Team. In between, the young Rishabh Pant utilised the opportunity to cement his place in the side and evolved as the first-choice wicketkeeper in Test format and also the backup wicketkeeper in limited overs.
Meanwhile, on another day at Mohali, Rishabh Pant was on the wrong side of things. He failed to make things fall in place with his poor glovework behind the stumps. Surprisingly, he received flak right in the stadium, as the people chanted the name of MS Dhoni, whenever, Rishabh missed a chance.
In 4th ODI, Rishabh Pant committed mistake twice behind the stumps. First, it was the stumping chance of Peter Handscomb, who scored a century while in the other case, it was Ashton Turner’s stumping chance, which completely changed the course of the match.
Rishabh Pant was one of the major factors behind India’s loss at Mohali:
When Ashton Turner escaped the scare, he was on 38 runs with a mounting target on the board. After the chance, Turner took on Indian bowlers by smashing them all over the park. His assault saw them winning the game with 13 balls left in the innings.
Meanwhile, fans aren’t impressed with the show from the youngster, who showed their critic side to him. In between, Sunil Shetty comes in support of Rishabh Pant and asks him to come good in future. Meanwhile, Wriddhiman Saha reacts to the tweet of Sunil.
Digging into his tweet, it read ‘He’s just 21 and represents India in all 3 formats. Let’s introspect and see what we were doing at that age. Give him a chance.
