Mumbai: The series against West Indies starting on December 6 is very important for Team India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. In this, he will have to demonstrate his batting as well as better batting. If he does not do this then it will be difficult for him to retain his place in the team.
Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman further said that the selection of Sanju Samson in the team is a 'strong message' for Rishabh to perform or be ready to leave the team. Laxman said that the wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh has given him as much opportunity as the team management, and if he does not achieve the rhythm soon, Samson can replace him.
Laxman said that, "The team management and selection committee has given Samson a strong message that we have a choice." Rishabh has got a lot of opportunities and I am sure the team management would have talked to him. "He said," The player has to prove the confidence of the team management and selection committee. " That, "Rishabh is not living up to that belief even though he has the 'X' factor."
