Pant didn’t have the best of outings with the Delhi Capitals (DC). The skipper amassed 340 runs at an average of 30.41, his worst accumulation of runs in all seasons. Pant who made his IPL debut in 2016, failed to score a single half-century this season. After two losses India finally bounced back in the third T20I to keep the series alive. Gavaskar said the win will allow Pant to access where he is in terms of his batting.

Gavaskar stated that Pant is expected to entertain with sixes and boundaries every time he enters the crease, which is one of the reasons for his dissatisfaction with him. He explained that Pant should examine his own game, which is often overlooked while captaincy, and suggested that he get his thoughts on the batting aspect.

“But what he needs to do is introspect. What happens with the captaincy often is that you don’t think about your own game. You are thinking about the game of the others. So, you forget that there is some technical issue with your own batting or the approach issue with the batting. That is what he is going to have to sit down,”

Gavaskar said to Star Ssports

Gavaskar’s advice to Pant is straightforward. Avoid shots that will lead to his downfall. Pant has gotten out in all three matches, trying his extravagant shots. In the first match, Pant was looking in good touch but he was dismissed while trying to reach for the ball. Cuttack was pretty similar and in Vizag, he got out while trying to slog.

“He must think ‘I am getting out hitting deliveries. It is not coming in my arc. I have even moved outside off stump and yet I am not able to do that. So now what do I do? Do I try to make my off-side shots better? Do I have to only look at playing on the on-side?”

Gavaskar signed off

India won the third T20I by a convincing 48-run margin to keep the series wide open. The fourth T20I will be played at Rajkot on Friday, June 17.
