Currently, the Indian team is on a tour of New Zealand to play three-match ODI series, in which they lost the first encounter whereas the second clash has been washed due to the rain, and now the series decider is also washed out due to rain.
The continuous bad performances of the Indian vice-captain Rishabh Pant in T20 cricket were in the limelight, and his poor performance still going on in this series however inform batter Sanju Samson is still waiting on the bench to make his place in the playing XI. Fans and cricket experts criticize him for his bad performance in a white ball and expect to see Sanju Samson as his replacement.
Before starting the third and series decider match, speaking to Harsha Bhogle, Rishabh Pant got frustrated while answering.
Here is the chat of Harsha Bhogle and Rishabh Pant:-
Question:- Tell me about this tour, this tour is full of rain?
Answer:- Yeah, rain interrupted the match very much in this series but the weather is not in our hand so we don’t think about this thing much.
Question:- You have batted almost in every position, tell me about your favorite batting position in Test, ODIs, and T20Is.
Answer:- I would choose to bat in the top order in T20Is, number 4-5 in ODIs, and in Tests I’m batting at 5.
Question:- Is your game plan changed whenever your batting position changed?
Answer:- Yeah obviously, but sometimes the skipper and coach know better and you have to play according to team requirements.
Question:- Looking at you, we get the feeling that white-ball cricket is your best but it’s your Test record that is better.
Answer:- Sir, records are just numbers. My white-ball record is not bad either. Interrupting Harsha said, “I am not saying it’s bad, I am just comparing it with the Test number”.
Then Rishabh Pant replied, “Doing comparisons is not a part of my life. I’m 24-25, if you want to compare, you can do that when I am 30-32”.
The stats of Rishabh Pant in Test match is really impressive, he has scored 2123 runs with a remarkable average of 43.32 whereas in ODIs he has 865 runs to his name with a lousy average of 34.60 which is not up to mark
