Graeme Swann urges Indian cricket fans “Don’t fix what isn’t broken, don’t change Rishabh Pant”

Indian youngster Rishabh Pant had scored 707 runs in the World Test Championship. Former England cricketer Graeme Swann has made a plea to Indian cricket, “Don’t change Rishabh Pant” – and he also requested everyone to just let the wicket-keeper-batsman play the way he normally does. The young talent has been India’s best batsman in Test cricket this year with 560 runs at an average of 56, one century and four fifties.

Pant was India’s top scorer in their second innings of the ICC World Test Championship Final against New Zealand, playing a counter-attacking knock of 41 runs. He also played the most crucial role in the historic win against Australia in Gabba Test. Graeme Swann told SportsKeeda, “Pant is a match-winner. All I want to say to cricket fans in India – don’t fix what isn’t broken. You have some absolute goldmine ready to be unearthed and used well for 10 years. don’t change Rishabh Pant. Let him fall. Let him be. He is worth it.”


He added, “India has got an absolute superstar in Rishabh Pant going in at six or seven. Just go back or Test match in India’s history. That magnificent century he scored against England (in Ahmedabad) that won them that series. Never forget that.”
