WTC Final: Wriddhiman Saha replaced Rishabh Pant


Rishabh Pant let go off the gloves during the final session of the World Test Championship Final against New Zealand in Southampton on Wednesday. After the young wicket-keeper went off the field, Wriddhiman Saha replaced him behind the stumps.

With Rishabh Pant off the field, many concerned fans took to social media to wonder about the reason behind his absence in the field.

New Zealand finally ended their ICC title drought and defeated Team India to be crowned the first-ever World Test Champions. Asked to chase the target of 139 runs in over 50 overs. NZ did suffer a hiccup when R Ashwin dismissed Tom Latham and Devon Conway. But skipper Kane Williamson (52*) and senior batsman Ross Taylor (47*) propelled their team to what turned out to be a comfortable victory.

The change in keepers was spotted at the start of the 29th over when Saha was behind the stumps. Ian Bishop, on commentary, said that Rishabh Pant had left the field because he was feeling unwell. Before going off, Rishabh Pant was his chirpy self in Southampton. Keeping up the spirits of his beleaguered teammates from behind the stumps.

Many fans speculated the reason behind Rishabh Pant’s absence. Some pointed out to Pant getting hurt by a sharp Ravichandran Ashwin delivery early on, speculating whether the blow could be the reason for his departure from the field.

The 23-year-old top-scored with an 88-ball 41. In the Indian second-innings total of 170, which left New Zealand 139 to win. Rishabh Pant was slammed for the way he got out in the second innings.
