It was a massive opportunity for young sensation, Rishabh Pant, to book himself a World Cup spot, but has he just squandered it? India was in trouble in the decider when Pant walked into the middle in front of his home crowd with a lot of expectations riding on him. He had the opportunity to become the hero for India but he failed. Pant scored 16 at a run a ball at a stage when he was required to support Rohit Sharma. It was Nathan Lyon who brought an end to Pant’s short stay in the middle. India lost the match by 35 runs and also the series 3-2. Pant also did not have a good game with the gloves in Mohali, which makes his World Cup selection slimmer.
