new Delhi: After the embarrassing defeat in the first Test against Australia, there was a lot of pressure on Team India for the Boxing Day Test, but the way the Indian team beat the Kangaroos on the first day in Melbourne is a praise. Team India forced the batsmen of the host team to kneel and were all out on the score of 195 runs.
After this performance of the team, the fans are appreciating the players. However, when the playing eleven was announced before the match, the team management faced a lot of criticism. The decision to include Rishabh Pant in the team in place of Wriddhiman Saha was being misconstrued. But today something happened in the match after which Pant gave proof of his qualification and he is getting a lot of applause.
Pant stopped speaking of critics
In the match, the 23-year-old player advised veteran bowling Ravichandran Ashwin from behind the stumps. After listening to Pant (Rishabh Pant), Ashwin did the same and he got success on the next ball. When Rishabh Pant was giving this advice to Ashwin, then this thing was captured in the stump mic. Now its video is becoming increasingly viral on social media and fans are praising Pant fiercely.
