The Indian team has recently shown a great performance in England’s limited overs cricket. The team led by Rohit Sharma beat England 2-1 in the T20 series and then in the ODI series by the same margin. While chasing the target of 260 runs in the last and deciding match of the ODI series, Team India at one time lost the wickets of its top players Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli at the score of 35. But Rishabh Pant’s unbeaten 125-run stand and a 133-run partnership with Hardik Pandya took India out of trouble. Pant hit the winning four for India and the team achieved this target in 42.1 overs.
Fans and cricketers also appreciated this first century by Rishabh Pant in ODIs. Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has also praised the performance of the young wicketkeeper.
Shoaib Akhtar said on his YouTube channel, “He has the pull shot, the cut shot, the reverse sweep and he is not afraid. He won in Australia. He won the match in England and helped India win the series.
However, the fast bowler popularly known as ‘Rawalpindi Express’ also advised Pant to lose some weight. He said, “He is a little overweight. I hope he takes care of it. Because India’s market is huge. He is beautiful. He can emerge as a model, earn in crores. Because when Even if a person becomes a star in India, a lot of investment is made on him.
Akhtar further said, “The talent he has can put the opposition team in a lot of trouble. Against England, he progressed his innings according to the situation and then became dangerous. He can take the innings forward whenever he wants. Rishabh Pant is going to become a super star in the coming time. If anyone can stop him, it will be Pant himself.
