Statement made about Rishabh Pant
On his talk, Virender Sehwag gave a statement of Rishabh Pant, saying, ‘Earlier the team said that they will back Pant, but it did not happen and they were kept out of the team. Now, when he scored runs in the Test series, it was said that he is fit and playing well, so now we will put him in the team. It is still being said that we will give Pant the freedom to play aggressively, but if it goes on like this and he played once or twice and innings like 21 runs off 23 balls, then he will be dismissed.
