India’s young wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant is in poor form these days. He couldn’t score a single half-century in the first four matches of the five-match series against South Africa. There is also a constant discussion about his physical form. Many former players called him unfit. Another player’s name has been added to this list. Former Danish Pakistani drummer Kaneria has raised questions about his fitness.
Kaneria thinks Pant is unable to sit up because he is fat. He said on his YouTube channel: “I want to talk about the keeper of Pant. I noticed several times that he is not able to get down while keeping wickets against a fast bowler. He is unable to s sit on his toes. It looks like Pant is overweight and heavy, he doesn’t even have time to get up early. Is he 100% fit?
“Pant has support from Hardik and Karthik”
Kaneria also made a statement on the captaincy of Pant. He said: “Experienced players like Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik have supported Pant very well. Pant has the opportunity to become the first captain to win a T20I series against an African team.
Pant’s performance in the series against South Africa
Pant has consistently struck at number four in the series against the African team. During that time, he averaged 14 and the strike rate was 105. Only 57 runs came off the bat from Pant. During this time, he only reached six limits. The pants are continuously on the ball outside the stump.
Gavaskar, RP Singh and Jaffer also made statements
Veterans like Sunil Gavaskar and RP Singh have also made statements against Pant. RP Singh said Pant beats very aggressively in testing but is unable to do so in T20. What is the reason for this?
Sunil Gavaskar said it was not a good thing that Pant was permanently dismissed outside of the stump. They don’t learn anything. Bowlers are constantly throwing him outside the stump and he gets caught in that net, he has to avoid playing overhead shots on those balls. He was dismissed the same way in ten innings this year, if he hadn’t left the ball then many balls would have been wide. It’s not a good thing that India’s captain is being fired in the same way.
Wasim Jaffer clarified that Pant’s place in the T20 squad is unconfirmed. When KL Rahul returns, he can be given wicket custody. Apart from this, Dinesh Karthik is also part of the team who is a brilliant wicket-keeper.
