Gambhir Criticizes Pant After His Dismissal In SA 2nd Test

As the 2nd Test between South Africa and India is shaping up to be an incredible match, India’s wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was struck in a quite horrible way on day 3. Whereas the visitors were in challenging circumstances, the keeper-batter rushed storming down the wicket to send the ball over the fence, only to obtain a thin edge that traveled to the opposing keeper. Here are IND vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Highlights.

As a result of his removal, many fans and analysts criticized both him and his shot. Former Indian star cricketer Gautam Gambhir was one among them, and he seemed dissatisfied with Pant. He criticized Pant, believing that the keeper-batter should really have faced the situation rather than just handing away his wicket.

Test cricket is about learning a lot from Dean Elgar: Gambhir

“The easier thing to do is to keep sledging someone and the toughest thing is what you have to face when you have a bat in your hand. I would have liked Rishabh to probably fight in that situation rather than stepping out and going for a big one,” said Gambhir.

When addressing the 24-year-old, the former Indian ace added that this was not the proper approach to handle the game’s longest version. He, therefore, used SA captain, Dean Elgar as a reference, advising the youngster to absorb from him. He subsequently went on to laud the 34-year-old.

“Disappointment is a very, very understated word to be honest because this is not how you should play Test cricket. Test cricket is about learning a lot from Dean Elgar and that’s the reason I have said that a lot of young Indian batters can learn a lot from Dean Elgar as well because when you play against world-class bowlers, they are not going to give you easy runs,” he said.

Hanuma Vihari as well as the lower-middle order guaranteed the Rahul-led side to get 266 runs after the left-hander was struck in the 3rd innings. Since the hosts require 240 runs to win the 2nd Test and tie the series, they only managed 118 for the loss of 2 wickets, having left them requiring 122 more runs to win.
