A lot was expected from Rishabh Pant after MS Dhoni was rested for the last two ODIs against Australia. He was given preference over Dinesh Karthik to prove his credentials ahead of the World Cup. However, his glovework was shabby all through Australia’s innings.

He was booed by the fans during the match and they even chanted Dhoni Dhoni to remind him of his duties. Apart from dropping catches, he missed the easiest of stumping chance to give reprieve to Ashton Turner, who won the game for his side in the end.

Pant also tried to copy MS Dhoni to run Alex Carey out but the ball went past the stumps, leading to more embracement.

Here’s how fans reacted to Pant’s shabby glovework.

Few of the fans even called for Dinesh Karthik’s return to the World Cup squad.
