Rishabh Pant says his white-ball numbers are not that bad | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: India wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant may have been woefully out of form in limited overs cricket this year, but that has not shaken his confidence one bit.
Talking to the official broadcaster before the third and final ODI against New Zealand in Christchurch on Wednesday, Pant said his white-ball numbers were “not that bad”.

Pant has scored just one fifty in the shortest format way back in February against the West Indies, while crossing the 30-run mark only twice in the 21 innings that he has played in 2022.
In ODIs, Pant scored two fifties and a hundred in the nine innings he has played this year.
“…the record is just a number. My white-ball numbers are not that bad okay,” Pant said.
Pant, who has Test centuries in England, Australia and South Africa, said he doesn’t believe in comparison at this juncture of his career.
“Comparison does not make sense right now, I am just 24-25 years of age. If you want to do the comparison, you can maybe do it when I am 30-32. Before that, the comparison does not make sense to me,” a visibly miffed Pant said.
Pant, who is the vice-captain for the ongoing series, endured another failure, scoring just 10 in the third ODI on Wednesday.
When asked about his preferred batting position in limited overs cricket, Pant said: “I would choose to open in T20Is, number 4-5 in ODIs and in Test I’m batting at 5. Yes, the game plan changes when you’re batting lower down the order but at the same time you have to bat where the team wants you to. There’s no need to premeditate in ODIs, only in T20s you need to premeditate.”
