Dainik BhaskarNov 09, 2019, 01:05 PM IST Sports Desk. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has defended Team India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. According to Ganguly, Pant is an excellent and very talented player and his performance will improve over time. Rishabh gave up an extremely easy stumping in the second T20 against Bangladesh. He ignorantly caught the ball in front of the wicket. It was against the rules. Apart from this, he was also flopping with the bat. The third and last T20 against India and Bangladesh will be played in Nagpur on 10 November.
Failure from both bats and gloves has led to criticism that he did not understand the basics of international cricket. In two matches of this series, he failed back and forth of the wicket. Due to this he has also been criticized a lot. However, the selection committee and BCCI president Ganguly are supporting him. On a question about Pant, Ganguly said, "Rishabh is a great player. Give him some time, everything will be alright. ”In fact, Sourav was asked by the news agency whether Team India is missing Mahendra Singh Dhoni behind the wicket. Ganguly further said, "He is taking some time to mature. You give them some more time. "
Pant also made a mistake in taking the DRS in two misconceptions T20. He could not do anything special with the bat even when the team was in dire need of runs at that time. However, in Rajkot, Team India won the match easily due to Rohit Sharma's brilliant innings. Now the third and last T20 will be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Stadium in Nagpur on Sunday. Kerala wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson is also in the T20 squad but he has not got a chance in this series so far.
