Rishabh Pant continued his disastrous form for Team India in One-Day internationals. The young left-handed still chasing his maiden ODI fifty for India was out for a first-ball duck in the 3rd ODI game between India and West Indies. Pant, who came to crease at the dismissal of Shikhar Dhawan, went for a glory shot in the first ball he faced but ended up in offering a simple catch to Keemo Paul off Fabian Allen. Fans were soon all over the youngster after another failure and trolled him for failing to learn from his past mistakes. West Indies vs India Live Cricket Score 3rd ODI Match.

In his 12th ODI game for India, Pant is yet to score a single half-century and has a highest-score of 48 runs that came against Bangladesh in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 group league game. He was dismissed for 20 from 35 deliveries in the second ODI game and already has three single-digit scores in the five games he has played so far for India following CWC 2019. Pant’s only notable contribution came in the third and final T20I game in Guyana where he scored a match-winning 65 not-out and was involved in a century-run partnership with Kohli. Chris Gayle Signs Off in Style: Twitter Bows Down to Universe Boss after His Possibly Final ODI Innings during IND vs WI 3rd Match.

Pant is currently India’s first-choice wicket-keeper in all formats of the game with limited-overs specialist MS Dhoni taking a two-month break from cricket. Pant has for long been predicted to be Dhoni’s successor in the Indian cricket team but has failed to show his potent with the bat. As result fans have been disappointed and therefore has targeted him for repeated failures.

The 21-year-old had spoken about playing a positive brand of cricket on the eve of the 3rd IND vs WI ODI game after being heavily criticised for getting out cheaply.  “Obviously, as an individual, I would like to have a big score. But every time I go out there in the middle, I am not focusing on that. I just want to play positive cricket and win matches for the team. Every match is crucial for me. I want to keep on improving as a cricketer,” he told news agency IANS before the game.
