Another day and another failure for Rishabh Pant. The poor form of Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh pant continues in the series. On day 1 of the Oval Test Chris Woakes took the wicket of the left-handed batsman. Pant tried to run down the pitch, Woakes saw it coming and cleverly bowled a slower ball, wide of off stump. Pant was committed to play his shot and lobs a simple catch to Moeen at mid-off.

Former England cricketer slams the left-handed batsman for his poor shot selection and said he is a better player than that.

Speaking to Harsha Bhogle on Cricbuzz Vaughan said, “It’s now enough is enough! It can’t be that that’s the way he plays. He is a better player than that. By dancing down the wicket, he is moving his head, he can’t have a base to swing”

Adding to Vaughan, Harsha said “For a long time we thought Rishabh Pant will be a good batsman and we were worried about his keeping. Suddenly his keeping has improved but batting has become a concern now.”

“I think India wants Rishabh pant to embrace a little more,” Harsha added.

The left-handed wicket-keeper batsman had scored 9 runs in 33 balls and attracted sharp criticism in the manner in which he got out. The 23-year-old is struggling in the ongoing series having scored 96 runs in 6 innings with an average of 16.

Team India bounce back in the third session

A half-century of skipper Virat Kohli and Lord Thakur helped India. to reach the respectable total of 191 runs. Later in the third session, Indian bowlers bring India back on track.

With the wicket of Joe Root in the dying hours of the day, the game is standing perfectly even. Bumrah got rid of Rory burns and Hameed. Umesh bowled a perfect in-swinging delivery to cleaned up in form Joe Root.
