Pant managed to score 27 runs, was involved in a mix-up that caused run out of Shikhar Dhawan, convinced Rohit Sharma to take a wrong call on DRS and missed two review opportunities in the first T20 International match between India and Bangladesh on Sunday.
India lost the three-match T20I series opener by seven wickets amid air pollution in Delhi.
Following the match, fans drew parallels with veteran wicket-keeper MS Dhoni to troll the 22-year-old wicketkeeper for a dismal show behind the stumps.
Pant had convinced skipper Rohit to opt for Decision Review System (DRS) against Soumya Sarkar on the last ball of the 10th over. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was unsure but Pant was confident of a caught behind opportunity. However, the UltraEdge showed a flat line as ball had gone past the bat.
Sarkar survived on 20, when Bangladesh were 62/2 in the chase of 149. While India lost the review because of Pant in the 10th over, the young wicket-keeper had earlier failed to spot DRS chances against Mushfiqur Rahim, when he was trapped LBW twice.
Later, Rahim went on to score a match-winning knock of 60 runs for Bangladesh.
