Instants after KL Rahul locked the game against South Africa in Thiruvananthapuram with a six, Rishabh Pant carried a support staff onto the corner of the ground and made him spit throw-downs.

Some of the crowd who stood exiting the stadium halted and commenced to watch Pant, transporting him and exhorting him to unfurl the big strokes

Pant opposed the urges and appeared willing to dead-bat the ball, though for instance when he sliced an expansive ball

 He is stained batting especially at the nets or before or behind the plays. His keenness is unmissable

 The real outings in the middle have been sparse. He was not required to bat in the last two games—against South Africa on Wednesday and Australia in Nagpur

 You could reason that he did not make the best of his leaves in the Asia Cup, where thrice in four games he strolled out to bat before the 15th over, and apart from the minor game against Afghanistan

Dinesh Karthik too has expended just rare minutes in the middle. He was not needed to bat in Thiruvananthapuram and encountered just eight balls in three games against Australia.

India’s designated finisher has only disputed nine balls in his final seven games and has been dismissed just once
