Why did Pant get the place?

Sanju came to bat in the first ODI when Team India was in trouble. India had lost 4 consecutive wickets. He handled Team India on the basis of a short innings of 38 runs. At the same time, Rishabh Pant, who is present in the team, has been out of form for a long time, yet the team is constantly giving him opportunities. Pant scored 15 off 23 in the first ODI. Nevertheless, he was included in the team in the second match. The anger of the fans is justified when Samson was dropped from the team in place of Falp Pant.
