Delhi Capitals’ star wicket-keeper batsman, Rishabh Pant has once again ended up under the scanner of fans and experts after his performance in the ongoing Qualifier 1 match between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals in Dubai.
Over the years, Rishabh Pant has become a star performer in the Indian Premier League and a batting mainstay for the Delhi capitals. However, the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League turned from bad to worse for the keeper-batsman.
His campaign in IPL 2020 hits its nether today as he became a victim of trolls after he wasted their only review for Delhi Capitals in the first innings. It happened when Quinton De Kock attempted a reverse sweep and an over-enthusiastic persuasion from Pant cost DC their only review.
Later, while chasing a target of 201 runs, Delhi Capitals started off in a worst possible note. Mumbai Indians collapsed their batting order in quick successions. Rishabh Pant once again failed to perform with the bat as well. Pant was dismissed after scoring only 3 runs in 9 balls.
In the meantime, social media was flooded with reactions from twitterati on this. From hilarious jokes to memes, twitterati are trolling Rishabh left, right and center.

Why is Rishabh Pant still in the team?
No contribution, terrible reviews.
It's quite surprising Ponting hasn't beaten the shit out of him with a broom.
