Shreyas Iyer defends Pant after wayward batting

Young Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was recently left out of the World Cup squad of India after the selectors preferred the experienced Dinesh Karthik over him even though they both had performed well in recent times.

The youngster recently gave his wicket away with a wayward shot against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at a time when his side needed him to play a longer innings. 

Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper Shreyas Iyer has come out in support of his wicket-keeper as he said that Pant always plays aggressively, and it often pays off while sometimes it does not.

“We have seen him converting his starts into a match-winning knock. It was a ball to hit, just that he couldn’t find a gap. It wasn’t a bad stroke and definitely, he could have played a bit smarter and assess the spinners and conditions. I can’t say anything to Pant, if he had connected it would have gone to the stands,” he said.
