The most criticized wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant in the first two T20s against Bangladesh.
After Sourav Ganguly, Captain Rohit Sharma has also defended and supported him
Dainik BhaskarNov 09, 2019, 06:57 PM IST Sports Desk. Team India wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who has been undergoing criticism, now has the support of captain Rohit Sharma. Before the third and final T20 to be played on Sunday, Rohit said that for some time, people should remove focus from Pant and leave this player alone. Rohit even said that what Pant is doing is actually part of the team's strategy. BCCI's Sourav Ganguly has already supported Pant.
The last match of the three T20 series between India and Bangladesh will be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on Sunday. Both teams are tied 1–1 in the series. Bangladesh won the first match by 7 wickets and India by 8 wickets.
Pant caught the ball ahead of the stumps in the second T20
Pant was heavily trolled due to a mistake during stumping in the second T20. It was a childish mistake in which Pant caught the ball in front of the stumps. Because of this Litton Das survived. He was called not out by the third umpire. When Rohit was asked about this, he said, “You know that there is a lot of discussion about Pant everyday, every minute. But, I think they should be allowed to do what they are doing on the field. I will appeal to everyone to take their eyes off Pant for some time. ”
'Pant is doing what the team wants him to do' Rohit said, "We know that Pant plays in an absurd manner and we have also given him complete freedom for this. If you remove your eyes from them for some time, they will look better players than before. He is just 22 years old. Trying to make a place in international cricket. Why are people talking so much about him. This is not right. He is not only doing wrong things, but also pay attention to what he has done well. Pant is doing what the team wants from him. "
