Rishabh Pant's mistakes limit reach, coach Shastri gave this warning
Finally, Team India head coach Ravi Shastri had to say that if Rishabh Pant keeps repeating the mistakes made during the tour of West Indies, then he will have to bear the brunt of it.
Shastri said that this young wicketkeeper-batsman disappointed on the West Indies tour. He was dismissed on the first ball in the third ODI of the series.
Ravi Shastri said, 'This time we are leaving him. In Port of Spain (Trinidad), he will be told about the kind of shot he got out of the first ball and he repeats it. Whether it is a skill or not, you should be ready to bear the brunt of it. '
Shastri told Star Sports, 'This is absolutely normal. Stop disappointing yourself. You are also disappointing the team. When the captain is with you at the crease and you are chasing a goal, then you have to play cricket wisely. '
Shastri also defended Pant and said- 'No one can question Pant's ability, but it will not be easy to stop him if he improves shot selection and right decision making.'
Shastri further said, "They may take one match or four matches to understand this. He has played a lot of matches in the IPL. Now the time has come for him to take responsibility and show his ability. '
Captain Virat Kohli said, "The only thing we expect from Pant is that he plays according to the match situation." We do not want him to play on his own. It is about understanding situations and dealing with them in our own way. '
