Reetinder Singh Sodhi, a former cricketer for India, has spoken out against the 25-year-old. He had demanded his immediate removal in a strident statement, claiming that everything had a limit. One of India's rising stars, Pant is being developed by the management to be the country's all-weather wicket-keeper.
Prior to the opening ODI of the series between India and New Zealand, Sodhi supported Sanju Samson as Pant's replacement in the Indian white-ball squad. He is turning as a weakness for Team India. Bring in Sanju Samson if things continue this way. You must ultimately take that risk since you cannot afford to lose and be eliminated from World Cup or ICC competitions. Problems occur when you offer too many chances. The time has come to give new guys opportunities, according to Sodhi.
