WI vs IND: Fans unhappy as Rishabh Pant throws away his wicket once again

Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant faced the heat of fans for throwing away his wicket in the first game of the 3-match T20I series against the West Indies in Florida on Saturday.

It was a wobbly seam delivery from Sunil Narine and Pant decided to slog sweep, the ball went off the top-edge and was taken by Sheldon Cottrell at deep square leg.

India had just lost Rohit Sharma of the previous ball and that audacious shot from Pant was just not required.

This is not the first time Pant has fallen prey to such shot selection. Fans are unhappy and are comparing him with Dhoni as the former India skipper always took responsibility, unlike young Pant.

Here is how fans bashed Rishabh Pant:


Meanwhile, India beat West Indies by 4 wickets at Lauderhill and took 1-0 lead in the three-match series. The second T20I will be played on Sunday at the same venue.
