“I am extremely impressed with Rishabh Pant’s keeping today” – Sunil Gavaskar


Sunil Gavaskar has lauded Rishabh Pant for his excellent glovework behind the wickets in England’s first innings of the second Test in Chennai.Rishabh Pant held two acrobatic catches on the second day of the Test to get rid of Ollie Pope and Jack Leach. He also looked assured while keeping on a tough track, with Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel getting the ball to turn and bounce viciously.I have enjoyed these two catches from Rishabh Pant as much as I have enjoyed his batting….— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) February 14, 2021While reviewing the day’s proceedings on Star Sports, Sunil Gavaskar spoke in glowing terms about Rishabh Pant’s wicketkeeping and his desire to learn.The former Indian skipper disclosed that Ricky Ponting, Pant’s head coach at the Delhi Capitals, was also effusive in his praise for the youngster’s willingness to put in the hard yards.”I am extremely impressed with Rishabh Pant’s keeping today. I spent a lot of time with Ricky Ponting recently in Australia and he was praising Rishabh Pant’s work ethic a lot. He was telling that Pant is a young player who wants to improve,” said Gavaskar.”Ponting told that when Pant had come for the IPL he was a little over-weight. So, when he was asked to reduce his weight a little, he put a lot of hard work and lost a lot of weight and was back to his normal weight when he reached Australia,” added the former Indian batsman.”Rishabh Pant thinks a lot about his cricket” – Sunil Gavaskar Rishabh Pant has been preferred over Wriddhiman Saha because of his match-winning abilities

Sunil Gavaskar pointed out that Rishabh Pant has also been learning the tricks of the trade from Wriddhiman Saha.”We have also heard that Rishabh Pant sits with Wriddhiman Saha every evening and discusses about wicket-keeping. Everyone knows that Wriddhiman Saha is the No.1 keeper if we talk about only wicket-keeping but the Indian team needs an all-rounder who can play destructive knocks just like Rishabh Pant is doing, because of which he has been selected ahead of Saha,” observed Gavaskar.The cricketer-turned-commentator concluded by stating that Rishabh Pant is a thinking cricketer although he may seem like a happy-go-lucky character.”Pant is still trying to learn from Saha by giving him the respect and it is because of that we are seeing the improved wicket-keeping performances. This guy looks carefree the way he bats but thinks a lot about his cricket and it is a very good thing for Indian cricket,” Sunil Gavaskar signed off.Rishabh Pant certainly stood out behind the stumps in England’s first innings of the second Test in Chennai. However, the fourth innings of the Test will present an even bigger challenge, and a good performance there will give him immense confidence.

The 23-year-old has been known for his witty remarks heard through the stump mic, and he was no different on Day 2 of the second Test against England.The youngster was heard motivating the bowlers and telling them where to bowl.

Petition to make Rishabh pant available for commentary in IPL for non-Delhi matches #IndvsEng— Mehul arora (@me_mehul02) February 14, 2021#Rishabh Pant is on fire again behind the stumps, can we please have a separate audio track for him?— Anupam Gupta (@b50) February 14, 2021Pant – ash bhai waha mat dalo..ash bhai niche rakho accha rahega…daro mat upar upar se khelne do…and jab wickets nhi aya toh pant bolta h – “Ash bhai apne hisaab se daalo “#RishabhPant #INDvENG— Govind (@Says_Govind) February 14, 2021

Earlier in the Test, Rishabh Pant played a crucial knock of 58* to help Team India reach a score of 329 in their first innings. When he walked out to bat towards the end of Day 1, Rohit Sharma was just dismissed for a brilliant hundred.Ajinkya Rahane soon followed Rohit and Team India were depended on the 23-year-old to take them to a daunting first-innings total. Rishabh Pant didn’t quite get the support he was expecting from his partners at the other end.However, he took calculative risks and dominated the opposition bowlers. His assault on Jack Leach in the first Test played on England skipper Joe Root’s mind and that certainly kept the left-arm spinner out of the attack.After bringing up his sixth Test half-century, Pant was at his best through his chatter behind the stumps. Team India will be resuming the post-lunch session in a dominating position with the visitors reeling at 39-4.

It is a good decision to rest Jasprit Bumrah: Gautam Gambhir


Gautam Gambhir has backed the Indian team management’s decision to rest Jasprit Bumrah for the second Test against England.The former Indian opener feels Bumrah has done a lot of bowling lately and deserves some rest. The Chennai pitch for the second Test could provide very little assistance to pacers. Hence, Gambhir stated it only made sense to give the 27-year-old some much-needed break.Gautam Gambhir explained that the break will help Jasprit Bumrah remain fresh for the crucial pink-ball Test in Ahmedabad. Speaking on Star Sports’ show Cricket Live, Gambhir said:”I think it is a good decision to rest him. He will be ready to go in the pink-ball Test match. There is nothing for the fast bowlers here and he has bowled a lot of overs in Australia and the first Test match, so I think it was a very good decision from the team management’s point of view.””You would want to have Jasprit Bumrah for crucial Test matches” – Gautam Gambhir”I’m not sure whether Jasprit Bumrah should be Picked for the 2nd Test match. India should preserve him for the Pink Ball Test Match at Motera. Bumrah is an X factor in the series, irrespective of what surfaces to play on.” – Gautam Gambhir— CricketMAN2 (@man4_cricket) February 7, 2021Jasprit Bumrah missed the fourth Test of the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy due to an abdominal strain. Gambhir believes it is highly imperative to manage the workload of the speedster and keep him fresh for important matches. “You would want to have Jasprit Bumrah for the crucial Test matches, the pink ball one and the fourth Test and there will be hardly any gap between the two. So, I think it is the right decision,” Gambhir stated.Mohammed Siraj, who replaced Jasprit Bumrah, has been one of three changes for Team India in the second Test. The hosts opted to bat first and were 106-3 at Lunch on Day 1.This is the spin combination India would have gone in with in the first test if Axar Patel had been fit. Siraj is a fine exponent of reverse swing so could be effective and to that extent, the absence of Bumrah might not be as big on this surface.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) February 13, 2021India need to win at least two Tests and avoid defeat in the final three matches to make it to the World Test Championship final.
