Rishabh Pant's poor shot selection has caused his downfall more often than not and Virender Sehwag on Monday hoped the keeper-batsman "works to better his game" and justify the team management's faith.
The 21-year-old Pant is being seen as Mahendra Singh Dhoni's successor across formats but has been criticised for his shot selection at crucial junctures, more so during the ongoing series against the West Indies.
However, Sehwag wants people to show patience with the young left-handed batsman. "Pant is an extremely talented cricketer with huge potential. It will be important that he is groomed well," Sehwag said.
"And now that he has been assured some quality time in the team it is important that he makes the best use of the opportunity and works on his game and develop as a cricketer," he added.
