IND vs NZ Live: Why it is the last chance for Rishabh Pant?

  • Sent in as a opener in the second T20I, the southpaw scored an unimpressive 6 runs of 13 balls.
  • This was the 25-year-old’s third consecutive single-digit score after registering 6 and 3 against England and Zimbabwe in the T20 World Cup 2022.
  • In the 22 matches in T20Is in 2022, the wicketkeeper-batter has only scored 346 runs at a strike rate of 135.6.
  • In the limited opportunities that Sanju Samson has got, the right-hand batter has scored 179 runs in six T20Is matches in 2022.
  • Samson’s strike in scoring these runs has been impressive as he has scored at 140 plus.
  • Under pressure also the right-hand batter held his nerve by scoring an unbeaten 30 against West Indies.
  • With Pant’s time nearing in the T20 format, the selectors can look at Samson, who is ready to grab his chance.

IND vs NZ: Pant likely to be given a chance in the third T20 as a opener 

While Pant has failed at the number five role to finish games for the side, the 25-year-old has also yet to impress in the opening role. In the three innings, the southpaw has managed a top-score of just 27 against England. The sample size is less to say Pant has failed as opener, and that is the only reason the management is likely to give the youngster another chance as a opener.

The Capitals skipper could lose that opportunity as well if he fails, as Shubman Gill is ready for his T20I debut if the experiment of Pant yet again fails
