Board of Control for Cricket in India’s newly-elected president Sourav Ganguly on Friday firmly backed Rishabh Pant, calling the wicketkeeper-batsman a “superb player” who will mature slowly and do just fine.
The 21-year-old is enduring a tough period in international cricket as seen in the T20I series against Bangladesh and has struggled to make an impact both with the bat and behind the stumps. But Ganguly supported him.
“He’s a superb player. Give Rishabh Pant time, he will be fine,” the former India captain told PTI when asked if India is missing Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s safe hands behind the wickets. “He will mature slowly, you have to give him time. India played really well [in Rajkot].”
