Gambhir, who announced his retirement from professional cricket in 2018, has been a popular face in the commentary box and he is also open about his views on various aspects on social media, including the ongoing Indian Premier League 2020. Gambhir, the two-time IPL winning captain who led Kolkata Knight Riders to win in 2012 and 2014 – shared his views on India and Delhi Capitals wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and his struggles with the bat. he said that the 21-year-old needs to improve and find a way to get out of this zone as well.
So far, Pant has played 12 matches in IPL 2020 where he has scored 285 runs at an average of 28.50. While he got a few chances, he hasn’t been able to transform them into a swashbuckling knock as his highest score is 38 this IPL. During the Qualifier 1 against Mumbai Indians on Thursday at the Dubai International Stadium, Pant got out for mere 3. Delhi eventually lost the game.
“First of all, you have to stop saying that Rishabh Pant is the next MS Dhoni. That is one thing which media needs to stop doing it. The more media talks about it, the more Rishabh Pant starts thinking on those chances. He can never be MS Dhoni. He has to be Rishabh Pant,” Gambhir said.
“MS Dhoni probably had so much of range when he came on to international sixes. With Rishabh Pant, only because he could hit those big sixes and stuff, people started comparing him with someone like MS Dhoni. Rishabh Pant has a lot to improve, especially from the keeping point of views and from the batting point of view as well,” he concluded.
