While playing on the first day of the rescheduled Edgbaston Test match between India and England, the 24 years old Indian cricketer
Rishabh Pant hit a wonderful century to save his team. But, rather than praising him with loads of love one of the former Pakistani cricketers named Mohammad Asif brushed him.
On 2nd July, he tweeted one video of 1 minute 33 seconds, in which he said that Pant did no wonders to score a century as it was totally England bowlers’ fault.

Many fans of both Pant and Jadeja lavished rich praise on his batting techniques and his ability of wicket-keeping, but he faced 39 years old ex-Pakistani player.
Mohammad Asif’s Views!
As per him, scoring 146 runs in 111 balls was just possible because of English players who didn’t bowl him in his weak areas.
He added, that Pant has some technical faults, his left hand doesn’t work properly and he still managed to score a century, which is practically impossible unless he was bowled smoothly.
Choosing a left-arm spinner named Jack Leach to bowl Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant wasn’t a good idea at all. Because of this wrong decision, Pant was able to score a century and England lost the match. In short, England players made a lot of mistakes in that match, he himself paved his way through his century in just 89 balls.
Does Mohammad Asif Underestimate Him?
The Pakistani player wasn’t questioning his skills and he’s not against him, instead, he just wants to say that when the opposition team’s skipper took wrong decisions, then another team’s player gets an edge to score big.
Initially, the match was going in favor of England as team India was in a scary position of 98/5. But later on, duo Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja came at the fifth number and lit the ground. They together made 222 runs for the 6th wicket and turns the table towards team India. His counter-attack knock included 19 fours and 4 sixes and from 222 runs, Ravindra Jadeja scored unbeaten 83 runs.
Asif’s Views On Virat Kohli’s Performance!
Like today on Rishab Pant’s playing, a few years back he shared his views on Virat Kohli’s playing format, but everybody started calling him out. But now his words are beginning to sound true as he didn’t score a single century in the past 2 years.
It’s not like, Asif didn’t like Virat Kohli even though he love watching him, but he wants to say that the right-handed batsman needs to work harder.
