ABOUT

Rishabh Pant, with his vast array of shots and big-hitting capabilities, is now the number one choice to succeed Mahendra Singh Dhoni, though he has faced a lot of criticism due to his fitness and was also said to be not tailor-made for the longer version of the sport. Much to the surprise of his critics, however, Pant has been able to prove himself across all formats and justify his selection in the squads.

As far as his T20 career is concerned, Pant plays for the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League. He also captained the side when initial skipper, Shreyas Iyer, was ruled out due to injury during the first half of the 2021 IPL. In the international circuit, Pant has featured 32 times for India, and that number is only expected to go up.

 

STYLE OF PLAY

Rishabh Pant has only one approach with the bat and that is to take on the bowler at any point in the game. He is not afraid to come out of the crease and hit the ball out of the park. Good with his footwork, he is a brilliant, agile keeper, although he has faced a lot of criticism regarding his fitness.
