Rishabh Pant’s attacking style of wadding has a mandate to lead the Indian team, as long as he does the “job” more often and people let him go when there is a strange failure, a senior batsman feels. Rohit Sharma.
The young left-hander, who has often been criticized for his dismissal, won a great hundred in the fourth test to put India in the driver’s seat against England.
“Pant has his own style of beating. Obviously there have been reports of how he should approach his inning. He seems to be beating in his own style, which is great from our point of view, because he seems to be getting the job done, which is more important, “Rohit told a post-match press conference.
Rohit could be very sympathetic to Pant, as he too had seen the other side of his appreciation as a talent that came with its own share of relentless control.
“You have to have a combination of players on your team. There will be a few guys who will play with respect, then you need someone who will take advantage of those chances, be brave, which is absolutely good for team management, as long as get the job done, “said the deputy captain of India’s white ball.
Rohit urged both of them not to avoid the accidental failures of Pant that came with the package.
“But there will be times when he will play his shots and get out and I don’t want anyone to be upset about that. Because he is someone who will play such an inning to put the team in a difficult situation suddenly within an hour. , the team is starting to look different. “
For Rohit, Mahendra Singh Doni’s faith turned him into the opener in which he became a white ball cricket and is now realizing his potential in the traditional format.
He feels that even Pant can play freely with the support of the team management. “People like Pant, you have to support their skills, support their abilities and management understands this and he also got the freedom, which is very important from my point of view, because I fully understand from the point of view of batsman.
“” When the captain and coach support you, how important is the feeling you need to have as a player. Pant seems to have it now. He’ll hit you from time to time, but I don’t want anyone to comment on how he got away with bad punches. “
“At the end of the day, we need those guys who can take risks and lead the team to a position that no one expected.”
When asked the clichéd question of whether Pant was ready to fill Mahendra Singh Doni’s shoes, Rohit was far less diplomatic than some of his peers. “I guess he’s more than ready. He seems to be doing the work for us.”
