Rishabh Pant is getting a lot of praises after the recently concluded four match test series against Australia which India won by 2-1. Rishabh Pant played an important role in India’s victory as he scored 274 runs in the three test matches that he played which also made him the 3rd highest scorer of the series. Pant played a beautiful innings of 97 runs in the Sydney test match while in the Brisbane test match, he scored 89 runs not out and made sure that he remained on the pitch till his team won the match.
However, the 23 years old cricketer has faced a lot of criticism in his short career as during the IPL 2020 also, he was trolled for his poor wicket-keeping as well as his weight. He didn’t get the chance to show his talent in the limited over formats against Australia and despite hitting a century in a practice match, he was not included in the Indian squad for the Adelaide test match. But when Pant got the chance to prove himself, he made proper use of the opportunity and at the moment, even his critics are calling him a talented cricketer.
Recently, Rishabh Pant gave an interview in which he talked about how he did not let the criticism affect him in a negative manner and kept working hard. He said that he was feeling the heat each day but it is a part of the game and he just ensures that he doesn’t stop believing in himself. He added that he was fortunate enough that there were few people with him who kept him telling that he should believe in himself and keep working hard.
Pant further stated that during the tough times, he understood one thing that if you are moving forward, it means you are improving. He also revealed that he focused so much on his game that he was not able to notice other things but as it was almost impossible to ignore all the noise which was created on the social media, he distanced himself from it.
There is no denying the fact that Rishabh Pant has been trolled a lot and it has happened more with him because he has replaced former Indian cricketer MS Dhoni behind the wickets and Mahi has undoubtedly been one of the best wicket-keepers and a great batsman as well.
We wish the youngster all the best for his future endeavors!
