Rishabh Pant was set on the crease, he even got life support at the beginning of the innings but despite this he tried to play a big shot unnecessarily. Team India had lost 6 wickets and Pant needed to stay on the crease. But Pant lost his wicket by playing a bad shot off Bolt. Pant’s Henry Nicholls took the best catch.
World Cup 2019 semi-final memory
Let us tell you that Rishabh Pant lost his wicket by playing a bad shot in the first innings as well. In the first innings, he tried to drive on the fifth stump ball and was caught at slips. Pant did not take any lesson from his first innings mistake.
Rishabh Pant has made such mistakes in the past, for which Team India has to pay a heavy price. In the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019 against New Zealand, Pant inexplicably played a shot off Mitchell Santner. Pant was still on the crease at that time and he got out after playing a very bad shot. After which Team India was out of the match and had to be out of the World Cup. The same thing happened in the final of the World Test Championship. It did not take long for Team India to shrink as soon as Pant was out. After Pant’s dismissal, India’s last 3 wickets fell for 14 runs. Team India was bundled out for just 170 runs and New Zealand got a target of just 139 runs to win.
