Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar slammed stand-in skipper Rishabh Pant for constantly getting dismissed in the identical means in opposition to South Africa within the ongoing collection. The Proteas have been bowling large outdoors the off-stump, tempting Pant to have a swing however the left-hander has not been in a position to get his weight behind the pictures.

Within the fourth T20I, Pant but once more struggled in his 23-ball 17, which comprised two fours and didn’t excite the consultants within the commentary panel. With scores of 5 and 6 within the earlier two innings, Pant has been beneath the scanner for his poor returns in T20 internationals.

That’s not signal: Sunil Gavaskar

Gavaskar criticised Pant for his related sort of dismissals and felt that the left-hander must curb his instincts of going for the massive ones when the ball is delivered large outdoors the off stump. He added that it isn’t signal for a captain to be dismissed in the identical means fairly quite a lot of occasions.

“He hasn’t realized. He hasn’t realized from his earlier three dismissals. They throw large, and he retains going for it. He can’t throw sufficient muscle on that. He has bought to cease seeking to go aerial that far outdoors the off-stump. There isn’t any means he’s going to get sufficient on it. It has gone to short-third! All of them plan it, South African bowlers and Temba Bavuma simply bowl large outdoors the off-stump and you’re going to get him,” Gavaskar informed Star Sports activities.

“10 occasions, he has been dismissed large outdoors off-stump (in T20s in 2022). A few of them would’ve been known as large if he hadn’t made contact with it. As a result of he’s so distant, he has to achieve out for it. He won’t ever get sufficient energy on it. To maintain getting out in the identical collection in the identical method, for a captain of the Indian crew, that’s not signal,” he added.
