Rohit Sharma believes nothing could stop Rishabh Pant except for one thing.
Team India are all set to take on England in the limited-overs series. And, India vice-captain Rohit Sharma hopes all-rounder Hardik Pandya will do everything to get back in form. His comments came about Pandya’s bowling as he didn’t bowl that much following a back surgery.
He only bowled once after his back surgery in October 2019 and played well with the bat. Since his surgery, he has played three ODIs and as many T20Is as well. And, Rohit Sharma believes Pandya will do well in white-ball cricket.
“Of course he’s been an integral part of the squad. He is been working on his bowling and batting, trying to sharpen those skillset. It’s been good month and a half that he’s been with the team in order to get ready for this limited series,” Rohit said ahead of the first T20 on Friday.
“He’s done pretty much everything so it seems that time has come for him to get ready and start doing what he does. He’s worked hard for his bowling and batting in this last few weeks. I hope he’s ready to do what the team expects from him,” he again shared.
“He can go from strength to strength”: Rohit Sharma on Rishabh Pant
On the other hand, the in-form Rishabh Pant is all set to return in the T20 side after his stunning show in Test cricket and Rohit Sharma sees that nothing could stop him except for the extra pressure from outside.
“He can go from strength to strength. There is no looking back for him. So far he has done exceptionally well from Australia to the home series against England recently, he’s performed exceptionally well,” he further added.
“I don’t see anything stopping unless you guys stop putting pressure on him. The good thing about his game right now is he is starting to understand the game situation, something that he ticks a box,” Rohit further said about Pant
The 23-year-old young wicket-keeper batsman had scored a scintillating 101 to help India win the fourth and final Test against England by an innings and 25 runs. “He can go from strength to strength from here. He is looked very good in keeping, approach or batting in all three departments,” Rohit Sharma concluded.
