He managed to muster only 17 off 43 balls during the first innings and a three-ball duck in the second innings. White commentating, legendary cricket Sunil Gavaskar lashed out at the wicketkeeper-batter and said that he didn't show a sense of responsibility. Pant was expected to form a partnership with Hanuma Vihari but lost his wicket cheaply."You have got two new batsmen at the crease and then you saw that shot from Rishabh Pant. Forgettable, no excuses for that shot, no excuses. None of that nonsense about that being his natural game. There has to be some sense of responsibility shown. Because there are others taking the blows. There is guys like Rahane and Pujara who have taken it on their body. So you also fight it out," said Gavaskar.
