Rishabh Pant, Team India’s keeper and batsman, is emerging as the star player of Team India. Pant, who was playing in the World Test Championship final, was not very impressed in his performance in the finals. Pant, who was dismissed for 4 in the first innings, scored only 41 in the second innings.
However, when Pant suddenly left the grounds in the final match during the thrilling last day of the WTC final, he shocked everyone. After Pant left, he Wriddhiman Saha took the mantle of wicket keeping. Pant’s action has now gone viral on social media. With New Zealand needing 139 for victory, Captain Williamson and Ross Taylor led the discussion on changing the Indian wicket-keeper at a crucial time of the match. Everyone was surprised.
Wriddhiman Saha came in to replace Rishabh Pant and donned the wicket keeper’s role for four overs. What happened to Pant? Fans were wondering why Saha was wicket keeping and posted on social media why Pant went. But Pant, who went out, rejoined the game after 4 overs.
The question of why those four overs were missed is causing a great deal of skepticism amongst fans. However, Delhi Capitals revealed the secret. DC tweeted that Pant had to leave the field as he was not feeling well and therefore Saha was wicket keeping in his place. Team India has not put on an impressive innings in the finals of the prestigious World Test Championship, with New Zealand winning by 8 wickets to seize the world championship award.
