Questions are constantly being raised on the poor form of Team India's vice-captain Rishabh Pant on the tour of New Zealand. Rishabh Pant is getting chances in playing-11 and Sanju Samson has to sit out. In the midst of being constantly targeted, Rishabh Pant himself has spoken about his form and has directly said that my numbers are not that bad either. In the interview with commentator Harsha Bhogle, Rishabh Pant appeared to be somewhat upset, however, shortly after making this statement, Rishabh Pant was dismissed after scoring only 10 runs in the third ODI.
What about batting order - Harsha Bhogle
Before the match, commentator Harsha Bhogle spoke to Rishabh Pant. Rishabh said here that I would like to open in T20 cricket, while in ODIs number 4 or 5 is correct and in Tests I bat at number-5. But things depend on how the coach and captain think better for the team. Whenever I get a chance, I try to do well.
Rishabh Pant got offended when harsha asked him about his form says"yes my T20I numbers are not great but I'm still 24 and there's no time to compare" the confidence shows how strongly he is backed.

It is not right to compare - Rishabh pant
During the conversation, when Harsha Bhogle said that your numbers are good in Tests, but not so good in ODIs and T20s. On which Rishabh Pant said that my numbers in white ball cricket are not that bad, I am only 24-25 years old and it is not right to compare in such a situation. When I will be 30-32, then such comparisons can be done. During this, Rishabh Pant was seen getting upset and there was a change in his tone while replying to Harsha Bhogle.
'Control the arrogance'

Significantly, Rishabh Pant got two chances in the T20 World Cup as well, but he failed in them. After this, the New Zealand tour also did not go well for him, which is why questions are being raised about his performance in white ball cricket. There is World Cup in the next one year, in such a situation, thinking has already started.
However, every time the team management has called Rishabh Pant a match winner and has spoken of supporting him. Team India's head coach Rahul Dravid, Captain Rohit Sharma have mentioned this many times, Team India's coach VVS Laxman has also called Rishabh Pant the match winner on New Zealand tour.
