Rishabh Pant did not have the nets of the outing as he replaced MS Dhoni for the two remaining One-Day Internationals (ODI) against Australia. At Mohali in the fourth ODI, Pant’s sloppy work behind the stumps cost India the game. The young wicketkeeper missed a relatively easy stumping of Ashton Turner in the 44th over and it proved costly as the right-handed batsman played a match-winning knock. IND vs AUS 4th ODI Video Highlights: Ashton Turner, Peter Handscomb Help Australia Chase Down Record 359.

Pant misses a stumping after he failed to collect Yuzvendra Chahal’s delivery down the leg. Turner was batting on 38 at that time and went on to score unbeaten 84 off 43 balls. In the same over, Pant, who tried Dhoni-style no-look run out, gave away an extra run.

After Pant’s bizarre glove-work crowd present at the venue started chanting “Dhoni, Dhoni” to further cause embarrassment for the young keeper, who is tipped to replace Dhoni in future. And after the match, Pant was trending on Twitter with fans trolling him for his sloppy work behind the stumps. Here are some of the reactions: India vs Australia 4th ODI- As it Happened.

Big 'gloves' to fill

Pant, however, had a decent outing with the bat as he scored 36 off 24 balls coming in at number five. The wicketkeeper-batsman came out to bat in the 40th over. His cameo included four fours and a six. Shikhar Dhawan Brings Up His 16th Century During India vs Australia 4th ODI at Mohali.

Pant is likely to find a place in the Indian squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as a reserve wicketkeeper. However, his performance behind the stumps at Mohali might make selectors think hard before picking him for the mega tournament. Pant will have another opportunity to impress at Delhi on March 13 in the fifth and final ODI.
