If Rishabh Pant makes a mistake, stands can’t shout Dhoni’s name: Kohli

Rishabh Pant has been under the scanner for a while due to his inability to convert starts and for erratic work behind the stumps. He recently also drew flak for poor DRS calls and several former players stated that he is fast running out of time.

India captain Virat Kohli on Thursday, 5 December backed the under-fire Rishabh Pant, asserting that he wouldn't let the young wicketkeeper-batsman feel isolated.
 
Pant has been under the scanner for a while due to his inability to convert starts and for erratic work behind the stumps. He recently also drew flak for poor DRS calls and several former players stated that he is fast running out of time.
 
Ahead of the first T20I against West Indies, India captain Virat Kohli said that the team "certainly" believes in wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant's ability.
 
"He can't get isolated to such an extent that he doesn’t do well," "If he misses a chance or something, you know, people can't shout MS' (MS Dhoni) name in the stadium, it's not respectful," he added.
 
India and the West Indies will compete in a T20 and ODI series, each of which comprises three matches.
