The 22-year-old again had to face anger on social media from angry cricket fans after he committed a stumping error during the second T20 match held in Rajkot.
Rohit Sharma, the indian skipper for 3-match T20 series against Bangladesh, gave his support to highly criticized wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant despite his mistakes on Thursday.
I think we should allow him to play his cricket which actually he also wants to do.Focus on him a lot more when he is doing good things also, not just bad things. He has been learning, there have been times he has kept well also. He is trying to do what the team management wants him to do, skipper Rohit said.
