The decider clash between India and South Africa begins tomorrow at Cape Town. Kohli is fully fit and will resume the role of captain. In a press conference held ahead of tomorrow’s game, Kohli discussed a number of questions raised by the media and fans. One of them being the batting of Rishabh Pant, rather the irresponsible batting display of Rishabh Pant. Pant hasn’t been among the run-scorers since his heroics at the Gabba. And his dismissal at Johannesburg has led to the youngster facing criticism.
Pant, the fourth member of India’s middle order, has come under the scanner after he was out for a duck in the second innings in Johannesburg, charging out of his crease at Kagiso Rabada. Kohli assured that Pant would reflect on his manner of dismissal and learn from it. He recounted a bit of advice from MS Dhoni – Kohli’s predecessor as captain and Pant’s as wicketkeeper – that helped him at a similar stage of his career.
