Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant found himself in trouble after two consecutive failures in two T20I games against West Indies.

The 20-year-old scored just 1 run in Eden Gardens and 5 runs in Lucknow. Even though he got a well-set platform to make the opportunity count in the second T20I. 

Pant is picked over veteran MS Dhoni in the T20I series. That puts more pressure on him to perform. But the left-handed batsman has failed to reflect his IPL performance in the international platform.

We have seen Pant going bonkers in IPL and keeping his team Delhi Daredevils alive in a game singlehandedly. But here, he hasn't stood up when needed. The last T20I between India and West Indies will be in Chennai and it is expected to be a batting friendly pitch. Pant will be eyeing that game as an important shot before going to Australia. 

Fans are impatient over Pant. They were disappointed after the Delhi cricketer fell early in both the games. The Twitterati went on to lash out at the youngster after two poor shot selection.

Here is how they reacted:
