Don’t try to be Dhoni: Gilchrist advises Pant

Former Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist comes up with an advice for the under-fire Rishabh Pant. The Indian wicket-keeper batsman has come under scrutiny after his poor performances with the bat and also poor DRS calls. Gilchrist also targeted the Indian fans for comparing the young talent with MS Dhoni.

"I'm not big on comparisons, like I have said before. I think Indians fans shouldn't be trying to compare him to Dhoni. Dhoni has set such a high benchmark. One day someone might match it but it is probably unlikely,” he said. "Rishabh looks like a very talented young player. Just don't put too much pressure on him too early and expect that he's going to produce Dhoni-like performances every day”, he added.

Advising the young Pant, Gilchrist said, "My advice to Rishabh Pant will be that learn everything you can from Dhoni but don't try to be Dhoni. Just try to be the best Rishabh Pant you can."
