India’s former batting coach comes up with a unique idea to solve Rishabh Pant’s batting problems
- 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.
“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 .

“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.
