Rishabh Pant is a cricketer who will be missed by the Indian team as well as the fans of Team India in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at home against Australia. The shortcoming of the Indian team is also evident as Australia lacks a pant to play with excitement. Kona Srikar is playing Bharat in the final team as a wicket keeper, but behind the wickets he is unable to make up for the lack of pant. In addition to wicket keeping, Bharat is also in batting.. he is unable to forget him. Due to this, in the last two Tests, the fans have been displaying flags saying ‘We Missing You Pant’.
Recently, Team India cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar also expressed the same opinion. The deficit without Pant will be clear.. He wishes for a speedy recovery. Sunny became emotional while giving commentary while India was batting on the second day of the second Test.
On the second day, when the Indian team was struggling in the first innings, all the fans who came to the stadium shouted ‘Rishabh Rishabh’. Moreover, while the Aussie spinner Nathan Lyon was bursting with five wickets, he commented on Twitter that ‘If he pant, Lyon will not cook any beans.
And Gavaskar, who was giving commentary as the fans shouted Rishabh Rishabh, also responded… ‘Australia is a very lucky team. Because this time Rishabh Pant is not in the team. If Pant had been there, the scoreboard would have been different now. Pant are you listening to me..? If so, we miss you so much. Get well soon..’ he said.
Rishabh Pant, who met with a car accident on his way from Delhi to Uttarakhand on December 30 last year, is currently undergoing treatment at Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. BCCI sources say that it may take another six months for Pant to recover. Recently, Pant shared photos of himself walking gently with the help of a crutch on Instagram. It is known that ‘one step forward, one step stronger, one step better..’ was written on that photo.
Meanwhile, the Indian team also won the second Test in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and took a 2-0 lead in the series. Like the Nagpur Test, the Indian spin duo of Ashwin-Jadeja exploded and overwhelmed the Aussie batting line-up.
