BCCI President backs ‘struggling’ Rishabh Pant


BCCI President Sourav Ganguly insisted that he has full faith on the Indian youngster Rishabh Pant, who is struggling to play consistently good cricket.

Ganguly backs struggling Pant
Nothing has been going right for Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant as he keeps throwing his wicket away and doing rookie mistakes with the gloves.

Pant had yet another embarrassing day with the gloves in the second T20I as he collected the ball before it crossed the stumps which gave Liton Das a chance despite being stumped.

However, Ganguly feels Pant will get matured with time and turn into a big player for India.

“He’s a superb player. Give Rishabh Pant time, he will be fine. He will mature slowly, you have to give him time. India played really well last night.”

Skipper Rohit Sharma led the team from the front as India levelled 1-1 in an emphatic fashion in the second T20I in Rajkot on Thursday but Pant again made headlines for all the wrong reasons by collecting the ball in front of the stumps, thereby missing Liton Das’ stumping. Pant, however, redeemed himself to an extent with an excellent run-out and stumping.

India play the final T20I of the series in Nagpur against Bangladesh on Sunday and the series decider is expected to be a cracker.
