MS Dhoni wasn't made in a day, don't suppress Rishabh Pant: Yuvraj Singh

Former India international Yuvraj Singh has asked to observe patience with the under-fire wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant who has been criticised for throwing away his wickets playing rash shots.

Heightened expectations put Rishabh Pant on sticky wicket.

Yuvrah echoes their view.

"Somebody really needs to talk to him," Yuvraj said at en even in New Delhi on Tuesday. "MS Dhoni was not made in a day. It took a few years so it will take a few years for a replacement also. There is one year to go for the T20 World Cup so that is still a long time.

Yuvraj, who announced his retirement earlier this year, says that suppressing Pant could prove to be detrimental.

"How they (Indian team management) get the best out of Pant is completely based on his character. You have to understand his psychology and then work with that. If you are going to suppress him, you won't get the best out of him," he said. "Yes, he has been given a number of chances but how do you get the best out of him. The people monitoring him in the team -- the coaches, the captain -- can make a lot of difference.
