Rishabh Pant Trolls Shubman Gill: Before the IPL 2021 storm hits the cricket fanatic shores, and before the cricketers, teammates at the national set-up, becomes enemies and devise a plan for opponents’ downfall, there’s ample time for the friendly banter. Along with his cricket skills, we all know how good Rishabh Pant can be with his sense of humour. There can never be a dearth of good banter when Pant is behind the wickets, and now the young wicket-keeper batsman poked fun at his Indian teammate Shubman Gill.
In a video posted by Delhi Capitals, Rishabh Pant can be seen playing Box Cricket inside a green screen studio, with his DC teammates Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin.
Pant bowled underarm to Rahane, with Ashwin taking a low catch. After the catch, though, slightly inaudible, Pant can be heard saying,
“Shubman Gill! Shubman Gill ko Bhi tag kar do (Shubman Gill! Please Tag Shubman Gill as well).
The banter was aimed at KKR batsman Shubman Gill because the 21-year-old recently said he may bowl for KKR in IPL 2021.
Following Shreyas Iyer’s injury, which he suffered during India vs England ODI series, Delhi Capitals (DC) management decided to hand Rishabh Pant the charge of the team ahead of IPL 2021. It was indeed a brave decision, considering DC have some experienced players on their roster, such as former Australian skipper Steve Smith as well as Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane.
DC will open their campaign with the game against MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings on April 10. While IPL 2021’s first game is between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 09.
Delhi Capitals will be aiming to go one step further this time around after making the finals in IPL 2020, where they came short against eventual champions Mumbai Indians. DC also finished second in IPL 2020 table.
