Speaking to Harsha Bhogle on Cricbuzz Vaughan said, “It’s now enough is enough! It can’t be that that’s the way he plays. He is a better player than that. By dancing down the wicket, he is moving his head, he can’t have a base to swing”

Adding to Vaughan, Harsha said “For a long time we thought Rishabh Pant will be a good batsman and we were worried about his keeping. Suddenly his keeping has improved but batting has become a concern now.”

“I think India wants Rishabh pant to embrace a little more,” Harsha added.

The left-handed wicket-keeper batsman had scored 9 runs in 33 balls and attracted sharp criticism in the manner in which he got out. The 23-year-old is struggling in the ongoing series having scored 96 runs in 6 innings with an average of 16.
