Former India captain and wicket-keeper Compared to Dhoni. When Dhoni decided to retire from international cricket after the 2019 World Cup, Pant was considered his replacement. Unfortunately these comparisons also affected the nature of the pant. Due to their erratic performance, Team India dropped them in all three formats. Pant’s childhood coach, Tarak Sinha, may be jeopardizing Pant’s temperament compared to Dhoni.
Talking to News 18 Cricket Next, Tarak said, “Rohan Gavaskar is not a bad player. “That’s why he’s focused on his game. Pant said he’s a versatile stroke player. He added more shots.”

Sinha said Pant should be allowed to set up his feet like Dhoni. There is no doubt that Pant is a game changer and a fast learner. But why compare Pant with Dhoni again and again? One has to accept the fact that Dhoni too has taken some time to show his potential to the world. We have to be patient with Pant. His time will come. This is just the beginning.
Notably, on the tour of Australia last year, Pant made a strong comeback and emerged as the winner of the match. Following this, Pant continued the show in his home series against England. He then made his comeback to Team India in T20s and ODIs. The India team has high hopes for Pant on the England tour. The final of the World Test Championship between India and New Zealand will be played in Southampton from June 18 to June 22. India will then play a five-Test series against England.
