Pant is caught with his pants down in test cricket !!!

Recommended Posts

In hindsight maybe we could have given DK one more test. Lords was difficult for everyone and he did play decently in the 1st test 2nd innings with Kohli
True that.
But the pressure to make Pant debut was intense.
I always maintained that PR and marketing will kill Pant's career before it has even begun

Dhoni/Dinesh/Pappu/Saha got saved because at their time there was no propaganda machine like this
And we too fell for the Pant hype.

Pant had a good domestic season and an A tour and was the logical choice . Most importantly he made it on merit. Exactly what did oldie DK do to deserve this chance ? Oh that's right a fluke innings against BD in the no one cares cup. Expecting a 20 year old debutante to perform with the bat in England against a dukes ball wielded by broad and Anderson when you are already 2-0 down in the series is ridiculous. What are the other options anyway? Bharat? Kishan?

 

Pant is not the finished article but he's the best hope we have. He also should be playing ahead of dhoni and DK in white ball cricket where he is bound to do better. Now that he has failed in the tests, it's a damn good excuse not to play him in ODIs for Kohli and shastri. :dance:

Your fear(media hype linked even with rookies) has become a norm these days,most child prodigies come with the media hype but anyway they have to try them.He was bound to find himself under the pump when it was decided he will make his debut in Eng against the cunning duo of Broad and Anderson

Well, there's more thing going in the background that even we can imagine lol.
I heard just now that there was a lot of money riding on Cook's century and Kohli's golden duck.

Pant has done pretty well- but the hype Behind his name makes me pretty suspicious.
Must have some good political/underworld backing.

Lets wait and see. No pressure flat pitch unfit broad and tired Anderson. Still not convinced 

    Why no pressure ?

   This match was a goner . England can still win as new ball is due .

   Andeson is bowling even now at 70+ overs with old ball.  Its not that some dollies being thrown at.

Have to say that i had posted that he needs to be tried.After a few failures this series, i thought i was wrong as he too seemed to be struggling this series.So i was starting to lose faith in him,but then he plays such a knock.It's wonderful for the bacchu to have a ton against Broad and Anderson bowling in their backyard.Guess he has scored more runs than Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan this series, hasn't he?

Abe 121 pe 5 ho chuke the. Ab kya maidan me tatti karta wo?

    I think enough Pant bashing was done  for almost 1 month  and even deservedly to an extent. After 1st test innings looked totally confused . 

But its time to give some credit . What is shown that boy has something special in stroke making. Defence not there yet . 

Keeping better than expected  but long way to go. 

Some one you should persisit with and see the  results after 1 year.

Last test. Dead rubber. Series already lost. 121-5 nobody is expecting the team to win. Best batsman in the team out for 0. Opposition is not coming hard at you. If you lose ur wicket  no one is going to blame you. Definition of no pressure

 

Pressure was in 4th test 1st innings when we needed a crucial lead to level the series.

If Pant had failed with the bat today ...  there would have been 50% chance of Karthick replacing him against the WI ...  and people saying that he is not yet ready for the big stage.

agreed. Its a no pressure situation. So its all just about handling of pressure which he will learn - he has skill to do very well. Sme with Rahul then.

well played young man ...showed that he has immense talent..... and what could he achieve for the team if  he played his own aggressive  positive  game. Now need to develop  lot more grit to handle tough situations  , a lot of which can come with experience.

Him being a left hander adds more to it.And with a little more polishing he can become that 1 core component of this team.

What PR backing nonsense.

If a person performs in domestics and A teams , he is a front runner for a place.

If saha had not got injured, he would not have got a chance.

If PR worked so much , he would have got a better deal in LOIs where the guy got treated badly.

If political connections worked so well , laaloo prasad yadav's son would be in the national team.

 

Why this constant need to downplay the hardwork of people?

 

The world does have a place for merit and hardwork and people  make a name by hardwork too.

 

Dostiyaari, PR , political connections and like you believe, dropping pants and sleeping around may work for some.....but most others come up through hard work .

 

Why downplay the work of a youngster who has come through the ranks....crossing every requirements of merit?

 

He is not here even just because of ipl.

He has worked hard in domestics and done well to merit a place in the national team.

He has ticked every box.

 

Now he has to work harder to prove he belongs.

It is always easy to make such statements after the event.

It is much more believable if such claims are made before things happen.
