Rishabh Pant, the wicket-keeper batsman of India, made furious 97 runs in Sydney test and played a match-winning inning of 89 runs in Brisbane.
He came into the limelight so quickly at the beginning of his career due to his aggressive batting. He got the wonderful chance in 2019 world cup after that his career was up & down. In his short span of his career, he has tasted success and failures.
In his latest Interview, He described his Career
Rishab said, “ yes it was a great opportunity to win the 2019 world cup, but I got out on 30 only as it comes in a gap of four years“. In the last two year, I have tried very hard to stay focused, but the learning process always keeps going.“
What was in his mind when he went to bat in Brisbane
Pant described that he doesn’t want to lose his wicket and tried to make runs on lose balls. When I was on the crease, the Lyon kept bowling me on the same spot, and the ball was turning so much, but I knew that if put the ball me in my zone, I would go for it.
When did you decide to chase the Target?
He said “ when Sunder came in the middle then we decided to go for runs. Sunder was facing Cummins, and he predicted that the bouncer would come then he smashed for six and next ball for four runs. Hence we got 25 to 30 runs quickly. And when I hit the winning run that time I forgot about the Saini’s injury, I was shouting on him to run three runs, but suddenly I saw that the fielder was not running behind the ball, luckily ball crossed the boundary. We won the test match.
We came to know that You distribute most of your cricket stuff.
Pant mentioned that he loved to distribute his cricket kits and other stuff in his Sonnet Academy to help upcoming cricketers, just like Ashish Nehra.
Now Rishabh is a superstar of the Indian cricket team. He created the history by his match-winning knock in Brisbane against Australia. Now his journey is started. He has got the potential to bring the results in favour of the Indian cricket team.
