Shastri discuss the conversation, which occurr when he was still coaching India and Pant was a member of the team.

“The last thing I wanted to do was tell him not to take that shot. I told him to think about it because you’re getting out in this manner and I’m getting bored. Try something more daring, such as the reverse sweep or something similar “On-air, Shastri stated.

“He look at me with that twinkle in his eye, ‘you have given me a way out here.’ He waited, and the next time he took the test, he got a perfect score. He reverse swept Nathan Lyon a couple of times, but he didn’t reverse sweep Anderson until Chennai. Then he did it to Jofra Archer in one of the One-Day Internationals (ODIs) “According to Shastri.

Pant hit a match-winning 89 not out to help India record a historic victory at the Gabba when they tour Australia in 2020-21.

He then went on to reverse-scoop James Anderson when he hit a century against England in Ahmedabad.

Archer’s reverse scoop came in the T20I series that followed the four Tests.

Pant tried to reverse-scoop Anderson during his knock in Birmingham, but he mistimed his effort and did not get a boundary.

Shastri went on to praise Pant, saying that one should not try to control a player’s natural instincts with his “match-winning ability.”

“But what you tell him is that when someone has that match-winning ability, that natural instinct, you don’t want to limit it. You want him to have that confidence when he goes out there, to be a little more aware of his ability and talent. He has a lot of time on his hands when defending “According to Shastri.

Pant’s century, combined with Ravindra Jadeja’s unbeaten 83, helped India reach 338/7 on Day 1 at Stumps.
