Hyderabad: Rishabh Pant has been going through a rough patch. Touted as the next big thing for his power-hitting abilities, the southpaw failed to live up to the expectations as he failed despite giving numerous chances.
The last IPL too was a tough one as the wicketkeeper managed just one half-century in the season, that too in the final against Mumbai Indians. However, veteran cricketer Harbhajan Singh backed the youngster saying he would bounce back stronger. “Rishabh Pant has not been able to live up to the performance that was expected from him. But he is young, and we know that he has a lot of ability, and can do well in the future,” said.
“Even in the recently concluded IPL 2020, he did not have a very successful run. He did not score a lot for Delhi Capitals, but we know that he is a quality player, and if he wants to make a comeback to all the three formats of the game, then he will have to score runs and show his ability.I believe that he will be able to do that in the near future,” added the off-spinner.
