Rishabh Pant says his white ball numbers aren’t that bad | Cricket news

NEW DELHI: India wicketkeeper batter Rishabh pants may have been woefully out of form in limited overs cricket this year, but it hasn’t hurt his confidence.
In talks with the official broadcaster for the third and final ODI against New Zealand in Christchurch on Wednesday, Panting said his white-ball songs were “not that bad”.

Pant has scored just one fifty in the shortest format against the West Indies in February, passing the 30-run barrier just twice in the 21 innings he played in 2022.
In ODIs, Pant scored two fifty and one hundred in the nine innings he played this year.
“…the record is just a number. My whites aren’t that bad, okay,” Pant said.
Pant, which Test has had in it for centuries England, Australia and South Africasaid he doesn’t believe in comparison at this point in his career.
“Comparisons don’t make sense right now, I’m only 24-25 years old. If you want to make the comparison, maybe you can do it when I’m 30-32. Before that, the comparison doesn’t apply to me.” said a visibly angry Pant.
Pant, who is the vice-captain for the running series, suffered another failure, scoring just 10 in the third ODI on Wednesday.
When asked about his preferred batting position in limited overs cricket, Pant said: “I would choose to open in T20Is, number 4-5 in ODIs and in Test I’m batting at 5. Yes, the game plan changes when you hit lower in the order, but at the same time you have to hit where the team wants. There is no need to meditate beforehand in ODIs, only in T20s you have to do it with premeditation.”
