As per Butt, Pant’s absence of “persistence” isn’t assisting his with causing in English conditions.
“He needs to foster some tolerance just as better guarded method. He has various types of shots however his protective instrument before the ball isn’t sufficient for Test cricket, particularly in these conditions.
“In India, he might discover a great deal of accomplishment, even in Australia, in light of the fact that the ball doesn’t swing a ton. In any case, especially in conditions where the ball swings a ton or in seaming conditions like in England or different nations, Rishabh Pant will deal with issues with the strategy that he as of now has,” Butt clarified.
