I am certain Dravid must have given him a ‘bamboo’: Sunil Gavaskar criticizes Rishabh Pant

Sunil Gavaskar has criticised Rishabh Pant and pointed out his dismissal during India’s second innings against South Africa on Day 3 in Johannesburg on Wednesday. Pant was dismissed for a three-ball duck, trying to give Lungi Ngidi the charge and getting out caught behind.

“It’s a valid question. This is something one could understand if Rishabh Pant had been batting on 30 and 40. This is something he had not done in Australia. There he applied himself, recognised that there will be hard times at the beginning when you come in to bat and then battling through the hard times, he got set and got to know how the pitch is. And then he played the big shots. That’s what he did in Australia,” Gavaskar said.
