Just after helping India to a historic victory against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Rishabh Pant spent some quality time with MS Dhoni and his wife Sakshi. Pant played an 89-run unbeaten battle on Day 5 of the fourth test game in Brisbane to help India win the game and keep the trophy. He is busy chilling out with Dhoni and his wife and looking forward to repeating his exploits in the upcoming Test series against England. Sakshi posted a photo with the duo on Instagram.
The photo shows the trio having a good time, with the former captain of India in a green colored party hat.
Often a victim of trolls and critics for fitness and wicketkeeping issues, Pant has suddenly become a national hero. He was India’s highest scorer in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with 274 runs. He hit a blistering 97-run knock to help India pull the third Test, then followed it up with a match-winning score to help India hold onto the series.
Except for Pant, even Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara gave good displays with the bat to lead India to a victory in the fourth Test. Gill registered 91 runs from 146 deliveries in the second innings of the fourth Test, with Pujara scoring 56 from 211 balls.
India won the fourth Test with three wickets.
India’s upcoming four-game test run against England starts on February 5. The selection for the first two Test matches to be played in Chennai has been appointed by the BCCI. Pant has been selected and will compete for the position of wicket-keeper with Wriddhiman Saha.
