Former Pak skipper slams Pant for irresponsible batting

Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has criticised Indian wicketkeeper/batter Rishabh Pant for not showing enough responsibility with the bat after he got out in the second innings of the second Test in Johannesburg.

Pant went back to the hut without troubling the scorers in the second innings. He got three back-to-back good deliveries from Rabada, the third of which was the wicket ball. It was a good bouncer which Pant wanted to pull by stepping out. The earlier ball was also a bouncer that had rattled Pant on the back foot.

It had brushed his gloves and went to slips on one bounce. That was certainly still playing on his mind. Thinking to take Rabada on, Pant gave him a charge on the next ball but ended up losing his wicket. The soft inside edge went straight to keeper.
