‘It’s time to…show him the exit door’ – Former Pakistan player’s brutal take on Rishabh Pant

Team India are currently playing the three-match ODI match in New Zealand. After the 20-20 World Cup, India managed to win the three-match T20I series by 1-0 under Hardik Pandya’s captaincy. However, both Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson are also a part of the squad on this tour.

Fans were hoping to see Sanju Samson in this series. But, in the T20I series, India did not give a single chance to the wicketkeeper. Even, in the ODI series, he got only a chance in the first match while India dropped him for the next one. Now, the former Pakistan spinner, Danish Kaneria shared his views regarding this debate about Rishabh Pant vs Sanju Samson.

“We have given you plenty of opportunities.” – Danish Kaneria on Rishabh Pant

While speaking on his YouTube channel, Danish Kaneria said that the time has come to show the exit door to Rishabh Pant. He said: “It’s time to give the entire series to Rishabh Pant and then try and show him the exit door. We have given you plenty of opportunities.”

He also said that India need to give more chances to Sanju Samson. “Many wicket-keeper batters are coming up like Ishan Kishan has been doing well. He has performed whenever he gets the chance. Sanju has been very consistent,” Kaneria concluded. Speaking of Rishabh Pant, he had a disappointing 20-20 World Cup for India. In two matches, he managed only nine runs.

Speaking of this ongoing tour, Pant played two T20Is and one ODI match so far. In those three innings, he managed only 32 runs. On the other hand, Sanju Samson did not get a single T20I. In the first ODI, he scored 36 runs off 38 balls, including four boundaries. So, Kaneria suggested that the Men in Blue should give a chance to Samson in the third and final ODI against the Kiwis. India will look to avoid the series loss when they will play the last match on 30 November 2022.
