New Delhi: Rishabh Pant, the wicket-keeper batsman of the Indian cricket team, was seen as the match winner of Team India till a few days ago. Not only this, but he was also being considered as the future captain, but the kind of form he is currently in and is constantly getting flopped in T20 Internationals, he has started getting severe criticism. Pant's biggest problem is losing his wicket by playing irresponsible shots. Now Team India's former cricketer Ritender Singh Sodhi believes that the time has come to send Pant out.
According to media reports, Sodhi has said that 'Pant is now becoming a liability for Team India. If so, bring Sanju Samson into the team, eventually, you will have to take that decision as you cannot afford to be knocked out of ICC tournaments again and again. When you give a player too many chances, then the problems start. Now the time has come to give chance to new players.' Sodhi further said, 'Only time will tell how many more chances he will get. Time is running out and Pant will really have to gear up now.'
Sodhi said that everything has a limitation, you cannot depend on a single player for a long time. If he is not doing well, he will have to be thrown out. Sodhi further said, 'We all know that Pant is a match-winner, but if you do not score runs, then you are not helping the team. You got an opportunity in a big event like the World Cup. I agree that earlier he did not get chances like this, but when you get the opportunity, your job is to perform better, which has not happened. Now the time has come for the selectors to think about another player ahead of him.'
