KOLKATA: Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant today said he is eyeing a fresh start with the upcoming T20I and Test series against South Africa after drawing criticism for a below-par show in the tour of West Indies last month. The South Africa series begins with the T20Is starting September 15 in Dharamsala. “I have practised hard for the South Africa series, and I am going with a positive mindset. I will try my best to get a good start,” Pant said. The 21-year-old was criticised for not making his chances count in West Indies. “It went great for our team. It’s great to return on a clean slate. But once a team returns, the last series is past. Of course, it’s our home series and there will be advantage for us but the most important thing is to start well,” Pant said. PTI
