IND versus SL 2022 | “Before I used to think too much, now I just focus on every ball,” says Rishabh Pant

After scoring 185 runs in three innings at a strike rate of 120.13, Rishabh Pant was named player of the series in India’s recently concluded Test series against Sri Lanka. Pant admitted he had made mistakes in the past, but they only helped him develop as a Test cricketer.

India’s wicket-beater keeper Rishab Panting admitted he’s made a few mistakes in the past in Test matches but he’s learned from them and is looking to improve with every game he features. Pant was named Player of the Series, as India completed a 2-0 Test Series sweep over Sri Lanka after winning the Pink Ball Test in Bengaluru by 238 runs in three days.

Pant played with bat and gloves as he totaled 185 runs over three innings, including 2 half-centuries. In the first Test, Pant crushed a quick 97-ball 96 to turn the tide of the match, while he hit a 28-ball fifty in the 2nd set of the Pink-ball Test, which helped India to set an unlikely goal of 447 points. for Sri Lanka.

Pant has been guilty of throwing his wickets in the past, but since last year’s Australian tour he has displayed much improved controlled aggression. He is India’s top run-getter in Test cricket since the start of 2021, scoring 1077 runs at an average of 43.08 with two hundred and seven fifty in the said span. Pant also hit them at a staggering 71.89 strike rate.

Pant, while addressing the post-match presentation, said: “I think both batting and wicket you have to keep evolving, I’ve made mistakes in the past and I want to keep improving. It’s not in my mindset, the wicket was hard to play, so I thought I’ll look for some quick runs.

“I will do whatever the team management wants me to do,” he added.

Pant was also involved in three stumpings and 2 catches, and made sure Inda didn’t concede any extras behind the stumps with her incredibly improved outfit with the big gloves.

“I think it’s more about confidence. Before, I thought too much about what I could miss. Now I focus on my process,” he concluded, talking about his development in the sequel.
