It was a tough day at the office for Rishabh Pant in the Indian National Cricket Team at Mohali. He failed to make things fall in place with his poor glovework behind the stumps. Surprisingly, he received flak right in the stadium, as the people chanted the name of MS Dhoni, whenever, Rishabh missed a chance. Meanwhile, Aakash Chopra makes his voice on the incident.
The former cricketer Aakash Chopra felt that the fans were too harsh on the youngster. He believes that the fans should not see MS Dhoni-The Keeper in Rishabh Pant, as he is not the regular wicketkeeper for the team. Further, he is hopeful of investing in Rishabh Pant for the future.
Digging into his tweet, it read ”Stop searching Dhoni-the keeper in Rishabh Pant. He’s work in progress. The question should be—Is he worth investing in? My answer—YES.”

Rishabh Pant committed mistake twice behind the stumps. First, it was the stumping chance of Peter Handscomb, who scored a century while in the other case, it was Ashton Turner’s stumping chance, which completely changed the course of the match.
Ashton Turner changed the course of the game:
When Ashton Turner escaped the scare, he was on 38 runs with a mounting target on the board. After the chance, Turner took on Indian bowlers by smashing them all over the park. His assault saw them winning the game with 13 balls left in the innings.
Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma put on a 193-run partnership for the opening wicket to break certain records on their way. Their good knocks were backed by Vijay Shankar and Rishabh Pant’s cameo, which saw India post a mammoth tally on the board.
However, the stunning knocks from Peter Handscomb and Usman Khawaja ensured Australia stay in the game till the last 10 overs before losing their wickets. Just when things looked beyond the reach, then came the special knock from Ashton Turner, who turned the game completely to raise curtains for the series decider at Delhi.
