India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who had scored just four runs in the first two T20I matches against the West Indies, bounced back brilliantly in the 3rd and last match of the series, scoring 65 not out in 42 balls. Pant’s blitzkrieg included 4 boundaries and as many sixes.
“There are various times that I get frustrated when I don’t get the runs. Then I think what different things I could have done to perform. There are times when I take the right decision and even then I am not able to perform. It happens in cricket and is part and parcel of the game,” Pant said.
“But what I try to do always is to focus on my basics, trust my instincts and just follow the process,” he added.
The left-handed batsman, who has been termed as future of the Indian team by the skipper himself, doesn’t get bogged down by the pressure.
“Sometimes I feel the pressure, sometimes I enjoy. But at the end of the day, what matters for me is that the entire team, including senior members, have trust in me and that gives me a huge amount of confidence because then you know that even if you fail to perform in one or two innings, the team will back you. Thus, support from teammates is a huge confidence booster,” said the 21-year-old.
