Rishabh Pant’s struggle continues in T20Is as he bags two failures in T20Is against New Zealand 

Things are not going well for Rishabh Pant. The wicketkeeper batter has come under the firing line for his continuous failures in the T20Is and his place in the side is even under the scanner. Despite his heroics in Tests and ODIs, the southpaw has failed to get going and set the stage on fire.

He looked scratchy in the second game and managed just 6 runs from 13 balls. n the third game, Pant showed great intent but his shot selection was again something that let him down. He looked good for his 11 runs but he went for wild heroic that saw him back in the hut for a low total.
