“He Is A Different Type Of Captain” : Aakash Chopra Manifested The Weird Captaincy Of Rishabh Pant

   The former Indian opener and the flamboyant commentator Aakash Chopra have pointed out the weird trait and out-of-the-box stuff that Rishabh pant used to execute in his Ambit of on-field captaincy. He manifested that Rishabh pant’s captaincy is something that you don’t see usually with the other captains and even in the leadership manual of the team’s think tank. The instance came out when Pant restricted the next over of Hardik Pandya after he went for 18 runs in his very first over in the first T20 against South Africa. This is the thing that goes opposite to his calibration of canny captain brain.

   Aakash Chopra has delineated that Pant has done this trick in this year’s IPL also when he lined the last over of Kuldeep Yadav’s spell in spite of he got three wickets in his first 3 overs of the spell. While addressing the preview element in his YouTube video of India versus South Africa 2nd T20, he said, “Rishabh Pant does try to think out of the box at times. We’ve seen that he’s not given Kuldeep Yadav his four overs in the IPL, even when he had taken four wickets from his first three. This has not just happened once but on several occasions. He is a different type of captain. As far as the batting order is concerned, I don’t think Rishabh Pant is the one deciding it. Rahul Dravid would be doing that”.

Later he mentioned the same thing which happened with Hardik Pandya in the first game,  “We missed Hardik Pandya. He is a gun player and he showed what he can do. While he gave away 18 runs from his over, he did beat the batter on three occasions. It was a strange over. Dwaine Pretorius had come out to attack, and he wasn’t scared of getting out”.
