Rishabh Pant scored 155 runs at a strike rate of 152 in two innings of the three ODI series against England.
Former cricketer Akash Chopra has praised Pant’s ODI series innings against England. Chopra described him as a special player and said that Pant takes the risk, that is his strength. They are playing shots with risk in consecutive matches. This style makes them special. Chopra compared Pant to AB de Villiers and Adam Gilchrist and said that Pant’s playing style is similar to that of de Villiers and Gilchrist. They play shots in the air, taking a little risk like both. When Pant plays a shot in the air, he certainly delivers it outside the boundary.
Handed India’s staggering innings in the third ODI
Chopra further said, ‘Of course Pant could not score a century in the ODI series against England, but he batted better. In the third ODI, he was promoted to number four, while he always comes to bat at number five. When he came, India had lost three wickets one after the other. The Indian innings looked staggering. In such a situation, he handled the Indian innings and took many better shots. It seemed that India would score a score beyond 370. But his brilliant catch was caught by Jos Buttler. It seemed that Pant was not ready to play the shot. I expected him to score a century. However, he batted better.
