BCCI President Sourav Ganguly feels that Rishabh Pant should learn to deal with the pressure of being an Indian cricketer. Recently, the 22-year old has faced enough scrutiny from fans and critics alike for a series of disappointing performances. However, Pant has received enough backing from team India veterans Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
While speaking at a media event in Kolkata, Sourav Ganguly gave his opinion regarding the pressure Rishabh Pant has to deal with. Ganguly said that pressure is only good for the youngster as Rishabh Pant will have to get used to it in the long run. He added that it is up to Pant himself to deal with the pressure.
Ganguly was also asked to give his take on comparisons between Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni. The former cricketer replied that it will take Pant around 15 years of consistent performances to reach MS Dhoni’s level. He appreciated MS Dhoni for his contribution towards Indian cricket and thanked the cricketer on behalf of BCCI.
