Yuvraj Singh believes one needs to understand how Rishabh Pant's mind works if one is to help him improve his game. The former middle order batsman feels Pant should not be suppressed.

There's been a lot of talk about the 21-year-old's place in the side and his personal form has not helped his cause, particularly how he has gotten out.

However, Yuvraj did highlight on the need to sit down with him and said, "Somebody really needs to talk to him".

He also does not want Pant to be compared with MS Dhoni.

"MS Dhoni was not made in a day. It took a few years so it will take a few years for a replacement also. There is one year to go for the T20 World Cup so that is still a long time," he said.

"How they get the best out of Pant is completely based on his character. You have to understand his psychology and then work with that. If you are going to suppress him, you won't get the best out of him," he added,

"Yes, he has been given a number of chances but how do you get the best out of him. The people monitoring him in the team -- the coaches, the captain -- can make a lot of difference," he went on to say.

With Dhoni on a break, Pant has the chance to cement himself in the side that will play in the World T20 next year. He has been hailed as Dhoni's successor for a while. He has the talent. Consistent performances now need to back it up.
