‘Problem in Pant’s technique’
Salman Butt said on his YouTube channel, ‘Rishabh Pant does not have the right technique to play in England’s condition. He keeps trying to get out of the crease with almost every ball. With such technology, he will not be able to become a successful batsman in Test cricket.
‘Pant is making such a mistake’
Salman Butt further said, ‘It is clear that he is playing with a lot of confusion and is shooting half-heartedly. When the ball is going to an angle, then he is trying to play away from his body, which he should have actually let go. It was possible that he could have been out in the slips.
