Indian team wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant did not play for Team India in the last two series. Although he had a chance in the Test series against New Zealand, he was wicketkeeping by Lokesh Rahul in the T20 and ODIs.
Pant chatted in cricket in a live chat on Instagram on Friday, May 1. He said that he used to catch a bus from Delhi to Roorkee (Uttarakhand) for practice at 2 pm. It was difficult to travel for 6 hours in the cold.
Pant said, “Uttarakhand did not have a cricket team at that time. So I used to go to catch the bus at 2 in the night. At that time it used to take 6 hours to reach Delhi by road. This was very difficult during winter as it used to be very cold. Whenever I look back, I think it was a good journey. You have to work hard to achieve your goal. “Pant has played 13 Tests, 16 ODIs and 28 T20 matches for India.
Pant said, “His father was a teacher. They talk to me about everything. He only told me about cricket. I had decided only in sixth grade that I would play cricket. The father said that do what you want to do with your heart. People in school told him that Master ji was spoiling his boys. After this my father used to say how can people think that someone is playing, then he is getting spoiled.” Rishabh further said that he likes to play more than one-T20 Tests.
The question of who supports the team Pant first took the name of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He said, “Mahi Bhai is like a mentor to me. They keep advising me outside and inside the field. Talk about personal problems. They advise me whether you want to take it or not. I try to fix the problem myself. They do not even let me depend on them. Do not always clear everything. They help if I have problems. Apart from them, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Shikhar Dhawan, as well as Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina, also help me.”
