Fans Fear The Worst For Rishabh Pant As Wriddhiman Saha Impresses

Not very long ago, Rishabh Pant was a fan favourite. His exploits in the Indian Premier League and in Tests made him an instant hit among the demanding Indian fans. The youngster made his Test debut last year in England and went on to score a century in the same series. In the following series against West Indies, he scored two fifties.

Rishabh Pant then further enhanced his reputation by slamming another Test century in Australia. However, he has struggled to do well in ODIs and T20Is in recent times. His failure to make the chances count in World Cup and a miserable tour of West Indies saw him receive criticism from all around.

And the failures saw him lose his place in the playing eleven to Wriddhiman Saha in Tests. Before the ongoing Test series against South Africa, Saha had not played since the Cape Town Test at the start of 2018. Saha remained sidelined for the better part of 2018 due to an injury. He made his comeback during the West Indies tour but warmed the bench as Pant was understandably preferred ahead of him.

However, the veteran returned to the playing eleven for the ongoing series and has made the most of it. Before the start of the series, skipper Virat Kohli hailed him as the best in the world and Saha has truly justified it by taking some absolute blinders in the series. And as Saha continues to impress behind the stumps, many fans think that it is not a good sign for Pant.

After Saha’s heroics in the ongoing second Test, the fans took to Twitter to state that Pant might find it tough to win back his place.

Here are some of the reactions:
