Pant Requests Critics To Stop Comparison With Dhoni

India’s young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been facing lot of criticisms recently. This has happened after his poor performance in the ODI series against Australia.

Pant started wonderfully in this year after his mind-boggling century at the SCG. But later he failed to replicate that performance in the upcoming matches. Nevertheless he had the backup of the team management.

Pant has always been know for his buccaneering cricket and swashbuckling nature. Indian cricket has seen such type of cricketers in the likes of Krishnamachari Srikkanth and Virender Sehwag.

But recently he was booed on the field for his wicketkeeping skills. Fans even started chanting MS Dhoni’s name. Regarding this Pant said that he is not thinking about that much. He also requested critics to stop comparison with legend Dhoni. Pant also said that Dhoni helps him to be a better cricketer and also shares good conversations every time.

“I’m not thinking about the comparison too much. As a player, I want to learn from him (Dhoni). He’s a legend of the game. I don’t want people to compare but I can’t stop them from doing so. I’m close to him and talk to him about everything how I can improve my game on and off the field”.

“I’m not saying I’m perfect. I want to learn and keep improving every day. When I went there (Australia), I had something inside, wanted to win a series outside India. Every team member was thinking that we have to do something different and make our team win the series. Every time we go out on to the field, we only think of winning the game. That’s the only thing we are focusing,” Pant said as quoted by Hindustan Times.
