Virat and Shastri are not letting Rishabh Pant play his natural game in England – Former player

Rishabh Pant has failed to get going in the ongoing Test series between England and India. The left-handed batsman has managed scores of 25, 37, 22, 2 and 1 in three Test matches. Former Aussie spinner Brad Hogg is concerned about the Indian wicket-keeper batsman. He wants the team management to let Pant play his natural game.

“I am a little worried about Rishabh Pant at the moment because when India were under pressure, there was a bit of confusion in the way he wanted to go about his innings.

“I think the leadership group should let him play his natural game because he hasn’t got enough experience behind him in that defensive game yet in England,” Brad Hogg concluded.

India won the second Test match in a remarkable fashion but the visitors lost the plot in the next Test, losing by an innings and 76 runs.

The visitors will be hoping to script a comeback when the two sides meet in the fourth Test at Oval in London from Thursday, September 2.
