Fans blast Rishabh Pant on Twitter as he once again fails to make any impression in the second T20 between India and West Indies.
After a failed outing in the first T20I where he got our for Golden duck, Rishabh Pant has once disappointed with yet another failed outing.
The problem is not that he is getting out, but, it is the manner in which he is getting out. After scoring a golden duck in the first T20I, Pant could only manage 4(5) as he got out playing a horrifying shot.
It seems Pant is taking too much pressure trying to make a name for himself. But, these kind of shots would only make him worse off. The ‘go all-out’ approach isn’t a wise approach if you are to play the game for a longer period of time.
With the kind of potential he has, it only baffles us why he isn’t trying to get his eye in before trying those outrageous shots. We just hope he learns how to handle the pressure at the International level during this tour.
Meanwhile, Team India managed to put a decent score on the board, courtesy to Rohit Sharma’s superb fifty. Rohit managed 67(51), while Krunal and Jadeja provided the finishing touch to lift India to 167-5 in 20 overs.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions on Rishabh Pant after his yet another failed attempt.

Why Indian selectors are not trying to test Ishan Kishan ? Saying again and again. Rishabh Pant needs a big shock of being out of the team. #INDvsWI

Rishabh pant once again throwing his wicket away. I thought he'll atleast learn from the world cup semifinals. BUT NO!!! I feel he has got enough chances now. If he doesn't care about his place in the team, he don't deserve to be in the team!!!😒 @bhogleharsha #INDvsWI #pant pic.twitter.com/rqOLfjF4Ed

#RishabhPant throwing away his wicket once again. Golden duck in first T20 and now 4 runs of 5 balls. Gonna lose his place, if this continues. He sure needs to prove his worth, as Shubhman Gill and many others are waiting and would be replaced soon. #WIvsIND
