Focus on Pant again as India play West Indies

Dec 05, 2019 15:12 IST

Whether you love him or hate him but you can't ignore Rishabh Pant. While many are questioning his place in the side, the Indian team management is still backing the wicketkeeper-batsman. Virat Kohli said, "It's a collective responsibility of the people around to give that player some space. If he misses a chance then people can't shout MS Dhoni's name. It's not respectful because no player would like that to happen. To do well for India, we need to make him feel like he belongs and we are here to do things for him and not against him". The series against West Indies could crucial for Pant as a few more failures might just cost him a place in the side. India will be looking to keep their unbeaten streak of 5 T20 wins against West Indies alive as they play the Caribbean Kings in the 1st T20 in Hyderabad on Friday.
