Rishabh Pant and getting out by playing lazy shots is a very common thing nowadays. We have often seen him play rash shots which are not needed, which neither the team nor the situation requires. He got out against Lucknow Super Giants today sheepishly to a simple ball in the day game in Mumbai.
Rishabh Pant got out to Mohsin Khan after playing a knock of 44 runs off 30 balls which included seven fours and one six at a strike rate of 146.67. The way in which he got out was rather lazy as he could have easily guided the ball on the on-side.
His footwork didn’t exist which led to his dismissal and didn’t cover the line of the ball. He was set and was timing the ball well, he could have gotten the match closer for his team and then played the role of the finisher. This wicket helped Lucknow a lot as it paved a way for their victory.

Rishabh Pant is having a decent season so far, neither good nor bad. He has revived the form of Kuldeep Yadav and allowed the bowler to bowl to his strengths and not worry about the result. This is a quality that a captain and a wicket-keeper must have and can help his side a lot.
Delhi Capitals falters in the run chase against Lucknow
Batting first, riding on half-centuries from KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda, the Lucknow franchise posted 195 runs on the board. The LSG skipper chipped in with 77 runs while Hooda scored a quickfire 50 to post a mammoth total on the board.
In reply, Prithvi Shaw and Warner departed early, but Rishabh Pant and Mitchell Marsh stunned LSG with their counterattack. Rishabh Pant threw his bat around, and got runs, but looked like he could get out any time. The Super Giants did manage to stop the run flow from him after the powerplay and Mohsin Khan castled the poles to get the big wicket of Pant.
Rovman Powell looked determined to take DC home but Mohsin outsmarted him with a short ball before getting Shardul with a slower ball.
