New Zealand vs India, 3rd T20I: Rishabh Pant once again flopped, Napier did not even bat in T20, got out after scoring 11 runs in 5 balls.
Rishabh Pant’s poor performance in T20 International continues. Pant’s bat did not work in the third T20 against New Zealand in Napier. Pant, who landed as an opener for the second consecutive time in the series, could score only 11 runs. This time Pant played only 5 balls and once again he got out after playing a very irresponsible shot. Rishabh Pant tried to play a big shot on Southee’s short ball, but Ish Sodhi, standing at third man, took his easy catch.
Rishabh Pant is proving to be a complete failure in T20 cricket. This player has been given a chance at every number in the middle order and now he is also being made to open, but Pant has the courage to bat. Rishabh Pant comes to the crease and plays a strange shot and throws away his wicket.
Pant’s figures are enough to get him out of Team India.
Please tell me that Rishabh Pant’s figures are enough to get him out of the T20 team. This player has scored only 53 runs in five T20s this season. This year, Pant’s average is only 21.42 and only one half-century has come out of his bat in 21 innings.
Team India’s top-order flop in Napier
By the way, only Pant failed in Napier. Rather, the entire top order of Team India collapsed. India’s top 4 batsmen could not show anything amazing. Ishan Kishan settled for 10 runs. Suryakumar could also score only 13 runs. Shreyas Iyer took the path of the pavilion on the very first ball. Only captain Hardik Pandya made a good contribution by playing quick shots.
Bowlers showed their strength
Even though the Indian batsmen could not show amazingly in Napier, the bowlers showed a lot of emphasis. Arshdeep Singh and Mohammad Siraj bowled amazingly. Both took 4-4 wickets. Siraj gave his best performance and took 4 wickets for 17 runs. And Arshdeep Singh took 4 wickets for 37 runs.
