India vs Western Australia: The T20 World Cup 2022 has come to a close but the Indian team is not able to regain its momentum in T20 cricket. The Indian team lost the second warm-up match against Western Australia by 36 runs. In this match, apart from KL Rahul (74), no Indian batsman could manage to score a big score. At the same time, the only left-handed batsman in the team, Rishabh Pant failed to score runs in the second consecutive practice match.
Team India’s concern is increasing Pant’s form
Pant scored just 9 runs in 16 balls in the first warm-up match against Western Australia. At the same time, in the second match too, Pant could not go ahead by 9 runs. His poor form is continuously increasing the concern of the Indian team. Pant has now played a total of 62 T20 International matches for Team India, but his performance has been quite disappointing. Pant has not been able to score 1000 runs so far in 52 innings of 62 matches. His average in T20 is 24.02. Although Pant is a very explosive batsman, but his strike rate in T20 is 127.62.
Only left handed batsman
At present, Pant is the only left-hander batsman. The Indian team has no other option for him. In view of this, his form becomes more important for the team. This form of Pant can become a big problem for the Indian team in the T20 World Cup. Pant appears very aggressive in Test cricket, but the format of the attacking Pant’s bat remains calm.
International career so far
Rishabh Pant has played in all three formats for India. He has played a total of 31 Test matches for the team, scoring 2123 runs at an average of 43.33. At the same time, while playing 27 ODIs, 840 and 62 T20 International matches have scored a total of 961 runs so far.
