BCCI has dropped Rishabh Pant from this series squad as they haven’t selected him which has shocked everyone but he was out of form for such a long time.
However, news has come that he was out of form as well but he has been rested due to injury. He is not that injured but he needs to strengthen his knee and that’s why he will be headed to NCA. He will make his comeback in the series against New Zealand.
Pant had a worse season this time:
He has scored 364 runs with an average of 21 in the 25 matches while he is having 336 runs in 12 ODI matches this year. He has faced a lot of criticism in the past when he was not able to perform regularly despite he was getting backed and getting the regular chance.
