Australia ODIs: Pant failed behind the wickets

In the recently concluded ODI series against Australia, Pant was a talking point.

He had an average series with his bat, scoring 52 runs in two matches at an average of 26.

However, it was his wicket-keeping skills for which he received backlash from fans as he missed three chances in the fourth ODI.

His wicket-keeping was one of the reasons behind India's loss.
