Rishabh Pant


Uthappa feels Pant needs a break from the game

Rishabh Pant has not been able to score runs in the recently concluded T20I series against New Zealand. It has raised questions on his temperament and approach. Former Indian batter Robin Uthappa feels Pant needs rest from cricket to regain form. Uthappa said, "Rishabh has been on the road with the Indian team for a couple of years continuously. He had to spend hours constantly within the bubble. It has a huge impact on his performance. I still believe he is a top-class batter but he is struggling to overcome mental fatigue." Uthappa added, "Once he switches over from cricket for some time I believe he will be back in form."
