“That’s What He Has To Sit And Think On” : Sunil Gavaskar Revealed This Major Problem In Rishabh Pant’s Batting.

Former Indian opener and the great Indian batter Sunil Gavaskar have pointed out this major problem that Rishabh Pant is getting in his batting sphere. The skilled Southpaw is struggling for a very long time to hit a big knock consistently which is raising the questions about his batting approach. Sunil Gavaskar who closely tracks Indian Cricket has detracted many times before the current Indian skipper of the team. Rishabh Pant finally get successful in clinching a victory for India in the third T20I game against South Africa, which alive India’s chances of a series victory.

Gavaskar on Star Sports said, “People expect that he will come along and start hitting the ball for boundaries and sixes. That is something, which because of what he has performed over the last 3-4 years, people have come to expect, and therefore there is that disappointment. But what I think he needs to do, is introspect. What happens during captaincy often is that sometimes you are not thinking about your own game. You are thinking about the game of others – bowlers or batters. So you forget that there may be some technical issue with your own batting. And that is what he has to sit down and think about.

Later he talked about the flaws in the batting of Rishabh Pant, “He has got 2 days. First and foremost, he will feel a lot better than India has won. So that little bit of pressure is off. It will give him a little bit of relief and he has got to think about his batting now. He must think ‘I am getting out hitting deliveries. It is not coming in my arc.

“I have even moved outside off stump and yet I am not able to do that. So now what do I do? Do I try to make my off-side shots better? Do I have to only look at playing on the on-side? Can I use my power and my timing? Can I start hitting it straight? Or should I hit over the extra cover?’ And that’s the danger part because that is where you slice the ball. And so unless you really hit it well, you are going to be caught in the deep. Hit the ball straight and he will still get the sixes”, he concluded.
