On Saturday, Team India batting coach, Vikram Rathour, gave his opinion regarding the young and energetic player, Rishabh Pant and felt the young batsman has the immense ability and once he knows and starts getting runs, he will be a ‘massive player’. “The reason why we keep talking about him is that he has got the immense ability and everyone believes that he can be an X-factor for any team and in the Indian team as well,” Rathour stated at the pre-match press conference on the event of the first ODI match against West Indies team on Saturday.
Vikram Rathour’s Opinion On Rishabh Pant:
“He has been selected by the selectors and the team management because all of us believe that he is a good player and once he starts to grab the runs, I am sure, he will be a massive player,” he stated. Earlier, Team India skipper Virat Kohli had extended his support to the younger batsman, Pant, stating that the team has belief in the young wicketkeeper’s capability and therefore he will be provided all the support by the management to get him to perform.
“We certainly believe in Rishabh pant ability. As you say, it is also the player’s duty to do well, but our responsibility is to provide him space and give him our back. He should get support and it is not good if you don’t get it,” Kohli gave this statement before the first T20I match of the three-match series against Windies Team.
Rathore said: “I think we are the number one team in the world when we are chasing our targets. When you are batting first, you need a very different kind of fearlessness. When we are chasing the score, we know the target and plan our game in a better form. The way we bat in the last match, I think that was one of the big tick in the box, and we are looking forward to maintaining this form,” he stated.
