What's with all these comments by the coaching staff on Pant. That's quite unprofessional.  When did present coaching staff start airing negative comments about current players?  First it was batting coach, now the main coach, even commentators and fans in the stands were after Pant. Everyone is after him.  I don't recall any other player put into such scrutiny by the coaching staff. Quite unprofessional.

Nothing wrong with the statement,Shastri is coach so he is giving his opinion.Pant has been the  keeper in short formats since world cup and it was his  postion to lose and he lost it. Pant did not do anything to lose is test keeping slot, I would still make him the test keeper.

This is not the way to treat a talented player. Every player has negatives. Just focusing on Pant’s is ridiculous (and there could be politics behind that. Certain someone could be pulling strings in the background) and that too when he is good enough to play as a specialist batsman

Too much noise is being about Pant, an inexperienced youngster and now it's getting boring. Just get on with the games.

 

I wonder if he has anything to say about the Mumbai trundler Thakur and how exactly he is in the squad.

Mumbai lobby.  Gavaskar kept on hyping him when he clicked with bat.

My gut feeling is he said this to back KL Rahul's promotion as keeper as he is "unofficially" a part time keeper.  Although he kept like full time in the few matches we saw, that is not his designated role. So questions will arise why do you play a part time keeper when you have a full time one. To justify Pant is also like a part-time keeper he probably threw this soundbite.

It will be a criminal injustice if Dhoni steps out of the team for more than a year, then waltzes back just in time for a important icc event. Are the selectors sleeping on the job that they don't have the balls to confront dhonis pr machinery. 

 

Regarding Pant he should definitely be backed. Even if Dhoni weasels his way back into the team its not like he will play for another two years. You need the next white ball keeper ready and if that's not Pant you'd have to start with Samson or Kishan. Remember they too are young and will have plenty of missteps before settling down. 

 

I don't see rahul being a long term keeper. He is first among the next batch and we should let him feel secure in his position instead of having to keep to justify his place.

my gut feeling is MSK n shastri only job is justify kohli fragile mind . I have shastri heard talking about adding n backing youngsters for years in commentary and he is doing exact opposite of that 

 

If after 2 games pandey fails and pant comes n smashes the **** out of bowler they ll say- he has matured and learned ( 2 game men mature bhi kar denge ) and if he fails 2 games after that they ll say - Pant has to play with maturity

knowing kohli he wont be even a long term option- till last yr it was Rahul who being dropped after making runs in wc, doing well in t20s and now all of sudden he becomes no.1 keeper . 

 

With kohli nothing is permanent

So unprofessional. 

 

You will rarely see any current aussie or english coach saying stuff like this about an active player. 

 

But I think it runs like this in desis we are usually negative and vocal about criticism, from parenting to coaching we are total duds.

They are looking for a scapegoat(s) to fit in Dhawan (in T20s) and Dhoni (if/when he becomes available) :dontknow:

BCCI should give shastri some counselling sessions. 

If any player says anything publicaly BCCI punishes them. But here we have a coach with an agenda who speaks publically bad about a player he is supposed to help and talks about getting an oldie back based on IPL form and BCCI does nothing

That's why they are playing politics.

Dhoni is going to play t20 wc whether we like it or not.

 

TM could be working towards the following top 6 for the 2020 T20WC:

 

Rohit

Dhawan

Kohli

KL (conditioning him to play in MO in T20s by making him WK and bat in MO in ODIs as well) 

Dhoni (back in the 11 after the IPL20 and to the welcoming chants of Thala Thala)

 

Other motivation could be that SA last qualified for T20 SF in 2014 so may be Ind wants to help it this time reach the semis, along with Eng, .... :dontknow:

Another public attack on Pant by the coach during an ongoing series. 
 

Repeating again - Pant is disliked by this TM, he should take an international break till the time these two are captain and coach. Ranji Trophy, IPL, County cricket - there is enough for him to focus on.

 

Someone should ask Kohli what is Pant doing inthe team if his keeping is not good enough

He is your primary wk and you are saying he ain't good enough for his core job? I mean WTF then why have you carried him for so long if now just before an ICC event you are not showing faith in him. 

 

I think he got this whole idea of Pant not being a good WK after KL was used as make-shift WK and is now speaking out with his sub-conscious mind.
