Ind vs Ban: said to Rishabh Pant, don’t try to be Mahendra Singh Dhoni: Indian cricket team’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is not taking the name of improving his poor form. Pant also failed to score in the first T20 match played against Bangladesh. He has failed to contribute to the team even after getting consecutive chances.
Pant is being seen as an alternative to former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Former Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist, one of the world’s greatest wicketkeepers, has advised Pant not to become Mahendra Singh and play his natural game.
Ever since Rishabh Pant, India’s experienced wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team has taken a place in India, everyone is watching them. The 21-year-old has been compared with Dhoni since taking over the wicketkeeping duties in limited overs and Test cricket.
Former Australian veteran Gilchrist said, “I don’t believe much in comparison as I’ve said before. I don’t think Indian fans should compare him with Dhoni. Dhoni has set a high standard for his performance.” One day maybe someone will match it, but this is hardly possible. ”
Gilchrist further said, “Rishabh appears to be a very talented young cricketer. There is no need to put so much pressure on him so soon. Expecting that he will perform like Dhoni every day, not right. My advice to Rishabh Learn everything you can learn from Dhoni, don’t try to be like Dhoni. Try to be the best Rishabh Pant as you can be. ”
Rishabh Pant was left out of the playing eleven in the Test series played against South Africa due to poor performance. He has got a chance against Bangladesh in the T20 team but Sanju Samson is ready to take his place.
