By looking at Rishabh pant‘s dangerous batting, the Englishmen had to change their planning against India in the Chennai Test, because of that English Team faced a lot of criticism.

England had to change planning

India was bundled out for 337 in their first innings in response to England‘s mountain score of 578 runs.

England had a chance to give India a follow-on, but the visiting team did not. In addition, England continued to bat until their team was all out in the second innings and did not declare the innings.

Rishabh Pant could have changed the stance of the match

Joe Root was then criticized for not declaring England‘s second innings until the team was all out, but England captain Joe Root revealed his fears after defeating Team India by 227 runs in the Chennai Test.

“If Pant (Rishabh Pant) had batted a session, he would have changed the attitude of the match. I didn’t want to be pressured to take wickets while stopping the score. I wanted the bowlers to be focused only on taking wickets.”

Joe Root was desperate for victory

“Our focus was to create just 10 chances, for which we had to bowl well in line,” said English captain Root (Joe Root). We could have declared early in the innings, but I’m glad we didn’t do it.

“I wanted to make sure that there should be 2 possible outcomes of the match. If we had lost this match then we would have had a bad start,” he said.

Rishabh Pant did wonders in Australia

Joe Root was scared of Rishabh Pant‘s batting because the brutal wicketkeeper-batsman recently played a key role in India‘s historic Test series win in Australia.

Rishabh Pant had won a memorable victory in the decisive match of the Border Gavaskar Trophy Test series played at the GABA Ground in Brisbane, with an unbeaten 89 runs. India had chased down the target of 328 runs.
