Rishabh Pant performance watch thread

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, Rahane's inconsistency in SENA where he is supposed to be our 2nd (if not first as Kohli had a bad record in Eng before this series), put a lot of pressure on youngsters such as Pant and Pandya. Pant kept better than Karthik, while Pandya won as a match with the ball and scored a good 50. Instead of appreciating their good work in their first overseas season, we have to had to unrealistically bank of them to perform like experienced veterans and win games for India .... They could still do that in home conditions but to expect them to do that on consistent basis in SENA in their first season was always going to be difficult .... we should have realistic expectations from our youngsters. Even Tendulkar did not shoulder such burden in his first few series. The seniors and fans at time handled him relatively better

I agree , if batsmen were doing their jobs Pandya and Pant would have been under less pressure and maybe performed better.

Poor wicketkeeping by pant.   So many byes conceded.   Saha is a better WK than pant.  No doubt about that.

We have to do with what is available .... it is like pick your poison .... would give first preference to Saha, who is a remarkable keeper

This idiot is equally responsible for India wasting their two reviews in 12 overs. 

Pant is certainly not ready for international cricket yet.  Can't even get his basics right.   Probably overrated here in ICF.    BTW, Where is Naman Ojha (a promising WK) these days.    Does anyone know ?

Agreed, the top 5 batsman are to be blamed...but you cannot absolve responsibility of lower order. They get easy conditions to bat, and England's lower order took advantage of these easy conditions in every match which eventually resulted in winning games.

 

Average Combined score from no.6 to 11 is around 50 in first 4 tests... that is just ridiculously bad. Pandya, Pant, Ashwin, DK have failed to score anything, needed better output from that lower order. 6/7/8 position is not suppose to be tail but they end up playing like one. And then 9/10/11 end up being tail of tail. 

 

Vihari and Jaddu showed how to take advantage of old ball after battling it out during tough conditions.

Runs by no 6-11 in this series

Test1

1inn - 40 out of 274 - 0,22,10,2,5,1  (influenced by Kohli's 149)

2inn - 75 out of 162 - 13,20,31,0,11,0 (good percentage of runs. 4th inning pressure)

 

Test 2

1inn - 51 out of 107 - 11,1,29,0,10,0 (good percentage of runs. But a forgettable game for Ind)

2inn - 61 out of 130 - 26,0,33,0,0,2 (good percentage of runs. But a forgettable game for Ind)

 

Test 3

1inn - 60 out of 329 - 18,24,14,1,3,0 (Kohli  did well. And Rahane played like he should be playing. Openers contributed a little)

2inn - 57 out of 352/7dec - 1,52,3,1,dnb,dnb (wasn't required to do much here. Pandya hit a 50)

 

Test 4

1inn - 25 out of 273 - 0,4,1,0,14,6 (influenced by Pujara's 130 odd)

2inn - 51 out of 184 - 0,18,25,0,8,0 (could have done better, 4th inning pressure)

 

Test 5

1inn - 152 out of 292 - 56,5,86,4,1,0 (good performance but it is more like we swapped 5&6 positions as Vihari should be batting at 5. Good knock by Jadeja  ) 

Not as bad as I thought. Comments in red above .... We usually do well when openers do well. Not expecting 100s but anything in the 30-70 range.

Combined average total runs from no.6 to 11 - 50 runs is not bad, Seriously? That is just expecting your no.6/7/8 to be tailenders with almost no output...disappointing

 

I mean its clear the conditions are better to bat with old ball. I will blame 6/7/8 batters as more responsible or equally responsible to top5.

Our lower order is inexperienced though esp. in these conditions.  Only Ashwin (60+ tests) and now Jadeja (30+ tests) have experience .... the tail starts from #9. Realistically, can't expect Shami, Ishant and Bumrah to do much

If its a minefield/spinning dustbowls, then its expected that lower order will score less as the pitch deteriorates after few hours of play. But when you are playing in England with overcast conditions, I believe it mostly gets easier when the ball becomes old and hence middle order and lower order has better chance of scoring, which is what England are good at.

He was second top test run scorer in 2016 tour of England which included a ton. My point is not individual tours or innings but  certain players have it to play at test match level mentally and others with more talent don't .

To state that he doesnt have much talent is overplaying his mental fortitude,he is an improved batsman much like shastri or steve smith. Azhar ali is one of the greatest openers pak has ever produced  ,most of the time their openers fail in foreign conditions.

 

Even in that match, pak collapsed in a heap in the final session, all that mental strength couldn't save them that match.It was yasir shah who won pak those matches, that along with younis's 200 are really the difference between ind and pak in eng of late ,ind spinners havent been as effective in eng.

I don't think you are understanding my admiration for Azhar Ali , he has done fantastically well in International cricket considering he had limited ability compared to many others . He has worked very hard and has mental strength other talented cricketers obviously didn't have . 

As you know your Pakistani openers, here is two more Mudassar Nazar and Shafiq Ahmed. Put in order your 1,2,3 with Azhur of who the best

Never saw those guys bat .Whatever little i have seen on yt ,majid khan looked quite good,but then again talent often means how nicely you drive or flick the ball ,a solid consistent defense is not seen in that light.

Experience with all three at age of 21 and the other two had much much more natural ability but Azhar has showed in Test cricket that's not all what you need

He needs to improve his balance,  especially when he plays deliveries on the pads, his head goes outside the line of the ball and his flicks goes in the air.  Teams will for sure target him in that area in future by keeping multiple fielders there to take the catch if the shot goes in the air.

Pant swung hard, as he does. Swung against the turn, which was not so good. Got out for 92. Eight more runs and he could have got a second 100.

 

It's a small mistake in light of the position India are in, but it is the kind that can be avoided, as Kohli keeps showing. He's got to 1000 runs for a third year in a row by cutting out silly mistakes. People around the world know his weakness outside the off stump, but to exploit it, the pitch needs to be helpful, the bowler needs to know how to swing the ball, the team needs to show discipline and only after that does the edge come and then it needs to be caught.

Even counter attacking 40-50 runs from no. 6/7 is great. Many a times such knocks can win you tests while setting a target in 3rd innings or chasing in 4th, which saha lacked. Dhoni had it but just for subcontinent.

Pant is capable of more than that.

10 Byes a match (due to wk fault of course) are not much of a problem unless he catches everything safely.
