Rishabh Pant is not at its best these days.
In the third test against England in Headingley, Leeds, nothing was actually on the road to India. Virat Kohli’s men lost in all three categories as the host won the contest with innings and 76 runs. With this victory, England leveled the five-game series 1-1 and is confident for the next game. There were some Indian players who struggled in Leeds, but not so many were disappointed. Reshab pants..
The southpaw scored 2 and 1, but this never helped India. In fact, the swash buckler wasn’t at its best throughout the series. In three games he hit only 87 runs, averaging just above 17. A young batter may fail regularly, dropping him and handing his wicket-keeper gloves to opener KL Rahul.
Similarly, former Australian spinner Brad Hogg said it could be a big risk, but it could be. Veterans claimed that the technical flaws in the pants were exposed to swaying deliveries in the United Kingdom. But Hogg also believes that opening and maintaining batting can be a daunting task. Therefore, team managers wait at least one more test before making a major decision.
When the ball is moving, the technique of reshab pants is open: Blood Hog
“Looking at the Australian series (early this year), it’s that aggressive batting brand, and he (Rishabh Pant) is doing it very well. He bows his head and spins the game that way. When the ball comes in England, His technique is open and shows that he is not facilitating those particular conditions. So I think it would be a big risk for KL (Raffle) to keep batting open, but it could be an opportunity for KL to do the job, “Hogg told the YouTube channel.
A 50-year-old woman further said that if India adopted this strategy, Suryakumar Yadav could find a sixth place. Emphasizing the diversity of Raffle, Hogg played a dual role in supporting the opener. However, he feels the pants will be available for the fourth test at Kennington Oval in London on September 2nd.
“He was very adaptable before and has done it before. This could be the opening of 6th place SKY (Suryakumar Yadav) and is probably the best position for him. So this is a very good option for India, but keep in mind the workload of KL Rahul, “said Hogg.
“It’s a tough job and I think KL Rahul can do it. So the honeymoon period of reshab pants may be over, but they won’t make that change in the next test match. I don’t think. If they lose the next test, they may think about it for the final test match, “he added.
