Rishabh Pant has been given the reins of the Indian Team after KL Rahul suffered an injury in the evening at the start of the T20I five-match series against South Africa. It did not have a good start as India lost the first two matches of the series. But under Pant’s stewardship, the Warriors fought back to finish the series in a 2-2 draw with the T20I determined to play later today. While Pant has received praise from many quarters for his leadership position, his batting career has come under scrutiny behind a string of low scores.
The likes of Wasim Jaffer and Dale Steyn have even said that going through the current form, Pant could find himself out of the XI playing in the T20Is.
Thus, the former Pakistani wrestler Danish Kaneria has raised concerns over the fitness of wicketkeeper India, calling it “overweight and bulky”.
“I want to talk about keeping Rishabh Pant, I have noticed one thing that when a fast paced player is playing football, he does not calm down and sit up. time. Just stand back and low, not sitting well. I think it shows a little concern on your fitness. Is Rishabh Pant fully fit? ” Kaneria said in a video posted on his YouTube channel.
“Rishabh Pant will have to improve his batting style. KS Bharat is available and I do not see any error in writing Wriddhiman Saha. Just a holiday for Rishabh Pant,” added the former Pakistani cricketer.
In the ongoing T20I series against South Africa, Pant struggled a great time with the bat. He has won just 57 games in four matches at an average of 14.25.
With Dinesh Karthik, who plays as a pure batter, making big feeds with bats, Pant is under great pressure to perform.
