Rishabh Pant News: Amazing Rishabh Pant… at the age of 24, he did what many veterans could not do

New Delhi: About two years ago, India had landed at the Old Trafford ground in Manchester to play the semi-final match against New Zealand in the ODI World Cup. In that match, India had lost four wickets for 24 runs till the 10th over. Rishabh Pant was at the crease in those difficult times. Had high hopes from him. But then Pant could not play his natural game due to less experience and pressure conditions in ODI cricket. He played a slow innings of 32 runs off 56 balls. Leaving the team’s winning work incomplete, he returned to the pavilion.

The match-winning innings that Pant played in more or less pressure conditions in the deciding ODI against England at the same ground on Sunday is being discussed all around. Team India had once again lost their three wickets for 38 runs while chasing the runs. When it seemed impossible for the Indian team to win on a bouncy pitch, Pant not only led the team to victory with the first century of his ODI career, as well as sent the message to the experts who criticized his shot selection that he had done these things. The world of cricket has come a long way in two years.

At the same Old Trafford, a ‘new’ Pant showed up in a completely new way. Pant has emerged as a pure match winner and the Indian team management will be happy to see his momentum going into the upcoming T20 World Cup. The team’s former head coach and former cricketer Ravi Shastri was very impressed with Pant’s innings.

The right mix of control and attack
Ravi Shastri described Pant as a player who has the ability to entertain cricket watchers across all formats of the game. Shastri said, “He is a great player for global cricket. He has the ability to entertain people in all formats. It was a special century, as India were out of the match at one point, but his special innings brought India back into the match.

I will remember this innings of mine for the rest of my life. When I was at the crease, there was no thought running through my mind. I was trying to focus on just one ball at a time. You always aspire to play like this when your team is in trouble. I also did what other players have been doing. I pulled the team out in tough times and helped them get the series.

Rishabh Pant

Pant took 71 balls to complete his half-century and then went on to score runs at a brisk pace, taking only 35 balls to convert that half-century into a century. After reaching his century, Pant hit fast bowler David Willey for five fours in the same over. Pant ended the match by hitting a four with a reverse sweep off Joe Root. The left-handed batsman showed the right mix of control and attack to clinch the series win for India.

brought to an end
Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer was surprised by Pant’s innings and performance. He said that it is good to see that the left-handed batsman is playing a fine innings in the series-changing match. Jaffer said, “Rishabh Pant has been in excellent form and has already played some incredible innings in his short career. It is wonderful to see how the series changing innings at the age of just 24 are playing out. He has played two outstanding innings in this short tour of England. While the result didn’t go in India’s favor in the Test match where he scored a century, he made sure this time around to finish the match.

Rishabh Pant has started to mature more in terms of cricket intelligence. Now watching the fielders play the shots as well as being able to change the strike, thereby improving cricketing intelligence.
