Rishabh Pant says his white-ball numbers are not that bad | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: India wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant can have been woefully off form in restricted overs cricket this yr, however that has not shaken his self assurance one bit.
Talking to the legit broadcaster sooner than the 3rd and ultimate ODI towards New Zealand in Christchurch on Wednesday, Pant mentioned his white-ball numbers have been “not that bad”.

Pant has scored only one fifty within the shortest layout long ago in February towards the West Indies, whilst crossing the 30-run mark most effective two times within the 21 innings that he has performed in 2022.
In ODIs, Pant scored two fifties and 100 within the 9 innings he has performed this yr.
“…the record is just a number. My white-ball numbers are not that bad okay,” Pant mentioned.
Pant, who has Test centuries in England, Australia and South Africa, mentioned he does not consider when put next at this juncture of his occupation.
“Comparison does not make sense right now, I am just 24-25 years of age. If you want to do the comparison, you can maybe do it when I am 30-32. Before that, the comparison does not make sense to me,” a visibly miffed Pant mentioned.
Pant, who’s the vice-captain for the continuing sequence, persisted any other failure, scoring simply 10 within the 3rd ODI on Wednesday.
When requested about his most popular batting place in restricted overs cricket, Pant mentioned: “I would choose to open in T20Is, number 4-5 in ODIs and in Test I’m batting at 5. Yes, the game plan changes when you’re batting lower down the order but at the same time you have to bat where the team wants you to. There’s no need to premeditate in ODIs, only in T20s you need to premeditate.”
