Team India, led by Virat Kohli, was knocked out of the ICC World T20 after an embarrassing loss to eventual champions England in the second semi-final. India scored a disappointing 168 runs but failed to claim even an English wicket as Jos Buttler and Alex Hales experimented with their bowling.

Reetinder Sodhi, a former Indian cricketer highlighted Rishabh Pant’s poor run in the shorter format of the game when discussing India’s performance at the ICC event. As a wicketkeeper batsman who struggled to make consistent appearances for the Men In Blue, Pant had a miserable campaign there. At the Adelaide Oval, Pant scored six runs in the first four deliveries of India’s match against England.

Sodhi backed up Sanju Samson to replace Pant in India’s white ball team in an interview with India News ahead of the opener of the One Day International (ODI) series against New Zealand. For Team India, he is turning into a burden.

“Bring in Sanju Samson if that’s the situation. At the end of the day, you have to take the risk because you can’t afford to lose and be eliminated from the World Cup or ICC competitions. Problems occur when you overextend opportunities. It’s time to give freshmen options” Sodhi said.

“Only time will tell how many chances he gets and for how long. He needs to tighten his shoes because the clock is ticking. Everything is bound. You can only rely on one player that much.

You have to show him the departure port if he doesn’t show up, he continued. While power batsman Samson only featured in 26 international white ball matches for the former world champions, Pant played in 27 ODIs and 66 T20Is for India.
