Yuvraj Singh has provided his support Rishab Pant when Kevin Pietersen slams him .
Former England captain Kevin Pietersen was unhappy with the batting of Rishabh Pant against New Zealand in the World Cup semi-final, while Yuvraj Singh defended the Indian player. New Zealand beat India by 18 runs on the Old Trafford ground in an extremely exciting match of the ICC World Cup 2019 Semi Finals.
Pant came out to bat at number-4 but could only make 32 runs in 56 balls. He was batting well, but suddenly lost his cool and tried to hit a rash shot off left arm spinner Mitchell Santner in a crucial juncture and perished while going for it.
Pietersen tweeted, “How many times have we seen Pant do this ???? !!! The very reason he wasn’t picked initially! Pathetic.”
However, former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh defended Pant.
“He’s played 8 Odis ! It’s not his fault he will learn and get better it’s not pathetic at all ! However we all are entitled to share our opinions “
Pietersen replied to Yuvi and said “My criticism comes out of frustration because of how good he is, mate. He does it sooooo many times! Let’s hope he learns FAST! ” to which Yuvi agreed.
