“When Match Turns into Tight, He Panics”: Ex-India Cricketer Comes Down Exhausting on Rishabh Pant’s Captaincy | Cricket Information

Rishabh Pant, the India captain for the T20I sequence in opposition to South Africa, is but to win a global match as skipper. Appointed the India captain on the eve of the sequence after KL Rahul was dominated out resulting from damage, Pant and the Indian cricket staff have suffered two straight losses. As India face the Proteas within the third T20I, a must-win one for the hosts, Pant’s captaincy can be below focus. Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer had an fascinating commentary on Pant’s captaincy.

“Sure, we’ve got seen that factor, even within the IPL. Someplace down the road I believe, the extra he leads, the higher he’ll turn into. However at the moment, at this stage, I believe that when the match turns into tight, he panics slightly bit,” Jaffer advised ESPNCricinfo throughout an interview.

“To some extent, the sequence is out of India’s fingers. As a result of in case you are trailing 2-0 in a five-match sequence, if in any of the subsequent matches there’s even small shortcomings then… I believe India should play sensible cricket from hereon. No matter the toss, an above-par rating ought to be made.”

“The spinners have (want) to return (carry out) higher into the sport,” Pant mentioned on the post-match presentation ceremony with out elaborating a lot.

He admitted {that a} complete of 148 for six was most likely 15 runs brief regardless of the monitor being two-paced in nature.

“I believe (whereas) batting, we have been 10-15 runs brief,” he mentioned.


“Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar for his 4/13) and all different quick bowlers although bowled very effectively. We have been brief within the second half and the issues didn’t go our means.

“The bowlers began rather well, however after 10-11 overs, we didn’t bowl effectively and that is the place the sport modified. We thought we have been going to do related issues (because the South African bowlers). Within the final three matches, we are going to look to win.”
