New Delhi: Team India, captained by Rohit Sharma, won the first T20 match against New Zealand by 5 wickets on Wednesday. With this, the Indian team is now 1-0 ahead in the three-match series. Captain Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav’s performance in this match was amazing. But both these players returned after getting out before India won the match and in the end, young wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant hit a four and gave Team India victory in the trapped match.
Dhoni like glimpse in this player
Team India was in a bit of trouble after Rohit and Suryakumar returned to the pavilion. In fact, after the dismissal of these two batsmen, Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer also returned to the pavilion soon. However, Pant held one end and got Team India to win in the last over by hitting a four. Prior to Pant, former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni used to do the same thing. Dhoni had brought the Indian team to victory in the biggest trapped match in the end. At present, Pant is the only player in Team India who has a glimpse of Dhoni in him.
already done amazing
This was not the first time that Pant finished the match for Team India. Even before this he has done this many times. Especially when Team India defeated Australia for the second consecutive Test series at his home, Pant had a big hand in it. In the last Test, Pant played an excellent innings of 89 not out. While the bowlers had come out to bat at one end, Pant held the other end and he led India to victory in such a pressure-filled match. Apart from this, in the home series against England, he had done wonders by coming down the order. At the beginning of his career, Dhoni used to finish the match like Pant, and the way Pant blows the ball in the air without any fear, all cricket fans miss Dhoni.
Can do wonders like Dhoni under captaincy
Rishabh Pant also has the same strength as Dhoni. Let us tell you that when Dhoni was given the captaincy of Team India in 2007, that use also proved to be better. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, India won two World Cups and one Champions Trophy title. It is known to all that a wicketkeeper understands the game more than any player on the field, so Pant can be used like Dhoni in the coming times.
Shown in IPL
In IPL 2021 too, Pant captained Delhi Capitals in the best way. Delhi topped the league table. Delhi was considered to be the biggest contender to win the IPL this year. However, this team lost in the last stage. Many times it is seen from behind the wicket that Pant keeps shouting and telling the bowlers to bowl in the right direction. Former captain Dhoni was also seen doing this many times.
