HIGHLIGHTS

  • A former Indian batting coach has found a solution to Pant’s batting woes.
  • Pants have struggled with shape for a while now.
  • The Indian SA series captain failed to impress with the bat and only managed to score 57 runs.
The five-game T20I series between India and South Africa came to an end on Sunday, June 19, with both teams winning two games each and the decider being eliminated. There were a lot of positives for the Indian team from this five-game home assignment, but one thing that worried the team management and the fans was also the struggle for star wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant with the bat. . In the four matches, the 24-year-old could only score 29, 5, 6 and 17 points and was sent off after continuing deliveries outside the stump.
Pant’s constant struggles with wide off-stump deliveries have earned criticism from the southpaw. Many former cricketers and fans have criticized the youngster for not learning from his mistakes, but India’s former batting coach Sanjay Bangar has suggested a unique solution to Pant’s problems.
Citing the example of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, the head coach of Royal Challengers Bangalore says the former cricketer’s first century in the ODIs came when he opened the innings for India . And the same can also be done with Pant and instead of playing him in the middle order, India should try him at the top.

“I’ve been thinking about it for three years. If you look at Sachin Tendulkar’s career, he hit his first century in his 75th or 76th innings when he was asked to open the inning against New Zealand after beating big game in the middle order.. At the moment, Indian team is considering a left-right combination. Yes, Ishan Kishan is doing well at the moment, but if Indian team is considering a left-right opening pair in the long run, Rishabh Pant can do the same job that someone like Adam Gilchrist did for Australia,” Bangar said on Featured Sports To display.

When he first burst onto the scene, Pant was India’s leading batsman at the 2016 ICC Men’s U-19 World Cup. But for the Indian team, he beat in much of it in the middle order, with the exception of a game against West Indies (2nd ODI) earlier this year. Pant entered the opener alongside skipper Rohit Sharma at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on February 9, 2022, in the absence of Shikhar Dhawan, but did little and was dismissed for 18 runs on 34 balls .

Speaking on the same show, India’s former all-around player Irfan Pathan also agreed with Bangar’s suggestion. And he insisted Pant could be ruled on the power play because bowlers are trying to play into the stump line for the first six overs, thanks to the decision of just two players outside the 30-yard circle. .

“We’ve been talking about this offside (problem) for a long time now. But when does it happen? When the field opens up, can we use Rishabh Pant on the power play when the bowlers can’t give enough width Yes there will be a challenge because the ball will swing early but then Rishabh Pant is a quality hitter He scored nearly 3500 international points in his short career So I think along those lines It might not be right now, it might be in the future,” Pathan said.
