Pant, who has scored 740 runs in 47 T20Is at 23.12, has been getting out in almost identical fashion while going for the big shot wide outside the off-stump. 

“He hasn’t learned. He hasn’t learned from his previous three dismissals”, Gavaskar said while commentating on Star Sports.

“There is no way he’s going to get enough on it. It has gone to short-third! They all plan it, South African bowlers and Temba Bavuma… just bowl wide outside the off-stump and you will get him.”

Pant has scored 29, 5, 6 and 17 in the last four innings. 

“10 times, he has been dismissed wide outside off-stump (in T20s in 2022). Some of them would have been called wide if he hadn’t made contact with it. Because he’s so far away, he has to reach out for it. He will never get enough power on it. 

“To keep getting out in the same series in the same manner, for a captain of the Indian team, that’s not a good sign,” said Gavaskar.

After India crushed South Africa by 82 runs in the fourth game, Pant too admitted that there are “certain areas” in his batting which he needs to improve. 

“As an individual, I can look to improve in certain areas. Not too concerned though. Looking to take the positives and looking to improve. Let’s see what happens in Bangalore. Looking forward to giving our 100 percent,” said Pant in the post-match presentation on Friday night.
