“Pant is important part of our plans for T20 WC” – Rahul Dravid backs Rishabh Pant in T20I
Rishabh Pant so far has failed to perform in the International T20I as per the standards he has set in the Indian Premier League. Pant has scored almost 750 runs in his T20I career at an average of 23 and strike rate of 124. Several fans also questioned the place of Rishabh Pant in the Indian T20I team.
However, coach Rahul Dravid backed Rishabh Pant after a poor T20I series against South Africa. Dravid said, “Personally, he would have liked to score a few more runs but it is not concerning him. Certainly, he is a very big part of our plans going ahead in the next few months. I just don’t want to be critical.”
