Pant has been a bitter disappointment for Delhi this season. After finding himself failing to make a place in India’s world cup squad, he’s only gone onto squander any chance of making a name for himself for tournaments to follow. He has had a way below par season.

His biggest misdemeanor comes against the spinner, a variety he’s just not able to negotiate. Shreyas is brought on at just the time Pant comes out to bat and with the ball spinning away from Pant at a stringing rate, it’s a battle which could decide which side emerges on top after the middle overs.
