‘Beta Tumse naa payega’ – Twitter ruthlessly trolls Rishabh Pant following his failure in first ODI against New Zealand

The 25-year-old fell prey to Lockie Ferguson only on the individual score of 15 runs in the first ODI against New Zealand.

Rishabh Pant

India and New Zealand are playing against each other in the first of the three-match ODI series at Eden Park in Auckland. The kiwi skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and asked the Indians to bat first at the bowling-friendly turf of Eden Park. Indian management went on to give another chance to out-of-form wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant.

Notably, Pant is struggling with a poor run of form with the bat since the 20-20 World Cup 2022. He failed another time on a given chance. The 25-year-old could score only 15 runs and fell prey to Lockie Ferguson in the 33rd over of the match.

This miserable performance from the Delhi batter didn’t go down well with the Indian cricket fans. They immediately took to Twitter to lash out both at the Rishabh Pant and the Indian management for giving back-to-back chances to the southpaw after continuous failures.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Speaking of the match so far, the opening pair of young batters Shubman Gill and Shubman Gill provided a strong foundation by stitching 124 runs for the first wicket in 23.1 overs. Shikhar Dhawan played a steady and strong knock of 72 runs off 77 balls with 13 boundaries to his name. Whereas Shubman Gill scored a half-century knock of 50 runs off 65 balls with a boundary and three maximums on his credit.

At the time of filling this copy, Shreyas Iyer and Washington Sundar are there in the middle with individual scores of 78 and 32 runs respectively. India is currently on the score of 298 runs for the loss of five wickets in 49 overs.
