The Reason For India's Defeat Was Not Only The Dismissal Of Rishabh Pant But What Was

India lost the Johannesburg Test match by 7 wickets and captain Dean Elgar's unbeaten 96 was a major contributor to the hosts' victory. In this match, while the other hand bowlers also performed mediocrely. Proteas completely dominated the Indian team in this test, while Rishabh Pant's dismissal after playing a bad shot in this match was also a matter of great discussion.

Rahane And Pujara Return To The Pavilion

In the second innings, Pant came to the crease when Rahane and Pujara had returned to the pavilion. There, Pant needed to score some runs for the team, playing according to the situation. But he looked very irresponsible and got out after playing very bad shots. He was also heavily criticized for this, but former India opener Sunil Gavaskar believes that Rishabh Pant was not solely responsible for India's defeat.


Rishabh Pant's Dismissal Is Only Responsible For India's Defeat


Speaking on this, Gavaskar said that the dismissal of Rishabh Pant was not the only one responsible for India's defeat. I think the other batsmen in the team didn't contribute what they should have. Hed India scored 300 runs in both the innings, the story would have been different. Regarding Pan's shot, you can say that it was very bad, but it was not the reason that India lost. India should have scored more runs and batted first, they started well, but they could not reach the score of 280- 300 runs.


Gavaskar Completely blamed the team's defeat in this match on the batsmen

In the second innings, Pujara and Rahane shred a 111- run partnership for the third wicket. Regarding this, Gavaskar said that if there would have been some long partnership between these two, then what would be known. It could have been that both of them would have been successful in giving a big challenge to South Africa.
