Former Team India cricketer Ritender Singh Sodhi believes that wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is now becoming a burden in T20 Internationals. Ritender Singh Sodhi said that the selectors as well as the team management should now give chance to deserving candidates like Sanju Samson who have been waiting for their turn for a long time.
During a conversation with India News, Ritender Singh Sodhi said, ‘He (Rishabh Pant) is becoming a burden for Team India. Sanju Samson should be brought. You cannot afford to lose and get knocked out of the World Cup or ICC tournaments. When you give too many chances, problems arise. The time has come to provide opportunities to new people.
Sodhi further said, ‘Only time will tell how many chances he gets and how much time he gets. Time is running out and he really should buckle up. Everything has a limit. You can’t depend on one player for so long. If he is not performing, you have to show him the way out.

Let us tell you that even though Sanju Samson was included in the team for the recently concluded T20I series against New Zealand, he was not selected for a single game. Sanju Samson was seen warming the bench throughout the series. After Sanju Samson was continuously ignored, the fans took out their anger on the team management on social media.
