Pant would be hoping for another dominating season with the bat for his IPL franchise Delhi Capitals in the upcoming season.Pant was given an opportunity to showcase his wicketkeeping skills after veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni was rested but a couple of errors behind the stumps brought the younger’s work behind the stumps under scrutiny.
Delhi cricketer was quoted by Cricket next as saying, “It will always be at the back of my mind. But right now, I am not focusing on that. I am too focused on the IPL and wanting to make my team win.”
The 21-year-old aggressive wicketkeeper-batsman came under fire for his inconsistent glove work during the last two ODIs between India and Australia.
When asked about how he’s working to improve his skills with the gloves Pant said, “See, as a player I want to keep improving every day. I’ve seen a few areas in my game where I need to work on and I’ve talked about my game to Mahi bhai about that.
But as a player, you need to keep improving, every match, every day. “His (Dhoni’s) aura is totally different when he comes to the dressing room. The calmness is there, and you can talk to him about anything, any problem. That’s the kind of aura he shares with everyone, he makes you comfortable.
