Rishabh Pant’s arrival at the international stage was awaited by most of Indian Cricket’s avid followers. The ones who had seen him for Delhi, India-U19, and in the IPL, knew what was in store, and were desperately waiting to see him do the same for the national side.

The time did arrive, and the young man did not disappoint. He played a record breaking spree to announce his arrival on the international stage. He has, to some extent, settled the nerves of Indian fans, who were worried about finding the right replacement for their captain cool behind the stumps. Maybe, he can never be as good a captain as MSD is, but he surely is someone who won’t let the Indian fans miss him behind the wicket. Next up, it is the 2019 World Cup for India, and Rishabh Pant is likely going to play a very crucial role in it. With IPL scheduled just before it, Pant will look to make the most of it to keep himself in the right shape for the mega event that follows IPL this year.

Awards and recognitions

  • Most Stylish Player Of The Tournament – IPL 2018
  • Emerging Player Of The Tournament – IPL 2018
  • Rishabh Pant started playing cricket for Rajasthan at the U-14 and U-16 level. However, he was removed from an academy stating him to be an outsider. Following the discrimination, he moved to Delhi and restarted his cricketing career there.
  • Rishabh Pant’s attacking flare of batting comes from a rather surprising coaching. It was the ever dependable Rahul Dravid who helped Pant improve his batting skills.
