“Rishabh Pant’s batting style has not changed, but he has become mentally difficult” – Yuzvendra Chahal
Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal of the Indian team has said that young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has matured, while keeping his aggressive batting style intact.
Pant has been one of India’s star performers in all formats in the last few months, starting with the Test series in Australia.
In an interview to Sports Tak, Chahal said that the change in Rishabh Pant‘s game is more than a mental aspect.
“Rishabh Pant’s batting style has not changed, but he has become mentally tougher. He is more clear about what he wants to do now and has started taking more responsibility. I would say that he Has matured really late. I remember he came into the team during the 2019 World Cup. When we lost the semi-finals (against New Zealand), he was really hurt. As an older brother I could see that he was very impressed. Chahal said, “I talked to him during that time and he came out of it well.”
Chahal selected Gaba Dastak and century in Ahmedabad as two of Rishabh Pant’s finest batting efforts.
“In Australia, he led the team to victory by scoring 89 not out on Gaba. Even in the Ahmedabad Test (fourth Test against England), when the ball was taking a lot of turn, he managed to score a great century. Those knocks Proved his maturity and his hunger. Previously, he was not able to perform consistently, but now he understood what he needed to do to succeed at this level. Chahal said, “I’m glad that He has assumed responsibility and is proving his worth. “
