There is no doubt Rishabh Pant has been a failure in white-ball cricket if we take the number of chances he has gotten into consideration.
The left-hander has played a number of match-winning innings, but the ratio needs to be up to the level one expects from one of the leading wicket-takers in the team.
On the tour of New Zealand, he didn’t produce one good knock, leaving his position at the mercy of selectors.
On the other hand, he has been an unstoppable force with the bat in red-ball cricket.
He lost his cool on Harsha Bhogle before the third and final ODI between India and the Kiwis.
Harsha Bhogle – I asked the same question to Virender Sehwag. White-ball cricket is your USP, but your Test record is better.
Rishabh Pant: Sir, my white-ball cricket is not bad either. Records are just numbers.
Harsha Bhogle (interrupting): I am not saying bad. I am just comparing.
Rishabh Pant: Comparisons are not a part of my life. I am 24-25, and if you want to compare, you can do that when I am 30-32.
