New Delhi. Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is celebrating his 24th birthday today i.e. on 4 October 2021. Pant used to roam from city to city in the initial phase to make his career in cricket. His struggle was also enough. He had to go from Roorkee (Uttarakhand) to Delhi, then to Rajasthan, later he returned to Delhi. Even once he was kicked out of the academy. Not only this, he had to spend days in Delhi till the Gurudwara.
Later he grabbed everyone’s attention with his batting skills. He batted for the Indian team at the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh, scoring a record-breaking half-century against Nepal and then scoring a century against Namibia to help India qualify for the semi-finals.
Incidentally, his century came on the same day when he was bought by Delhi Daredevils at a base price of Rs 10 lakh at a bid of Rs 1.9 crore. A year after making his Ranji Trophy debut at the age of 18 in 2015, Pant rose to prominence in the 2016-17 first-class season by scoring a triple century against Maharashtra and a scintillating 48-ball century against Jharkhand. In January 2017, he got a place in India’s T20 squad for 3 home matches against England. However, he could play only the third match in the series and scored an unbeaten 5 runs in that match in Bangalore.
At one time he was called the successor of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. His batting style is quite different. He is seen batting in a fearless manner, even if there is pressure on the team. He is also criticized many times for this, but he is also famous for his style. Fans also like him for this.
Pant has played 25 Tests, 18 ODIs and 33 T20 Internationals in his career so far. He has a total of 1549 runs in Tests with the help of 3 centuries, 7 half-centuries, while in ODIs he has scored a total of 529 runs with the help of 3 half-centuries. In T20 International career, he has scored 2 fifties and has scored a total of 512 runs. He will now be seen showing his strength in the T20 World Cup.
