IND vs ENG: Rishabh Pant told his secret before the England series, due to these reasons, made a splash throughout the year

Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is glad that he has seen ups and downs in his short international career so far which has helped him shine as a player as he learned from his mistakes. Pant, who recently recovered from Kovid-19, is ready to play his 22nd Test match for India at the same ground (Trentbridge) on which he made his first impression in Test matches by hitting a long six in 2018. Pant told 'BCCI.TV' on Saturday, 'It has been a wonderful journey because at the very beginning of my career I saw many ups and downs. As a cricketer, you grow, learn from your mistakes, improve yourself and come back and perform well. I am glad that I learned from my mistakes and took advantage of whatever opportunity I got after that. I'm happy.'

Pant said that he tries to learn from all the top cricketers to become a better player. He said, 'I talk to Rohit bhai a lot like about the game what we did in the last match and what we can do in the next matches. What can I add to my game? I also take technical knowledge from Virat bhai. Especially about the back and forth game of the wicket playing England. He wants to learn from everyone to become a better player. They said,

I also talk to Ravi bhai (Shastri) a lot because he has played a lot of cricket around the world. When Ash bhai (Ashwin) is bowling, he knows what the intentions of the batsman are. So as a batsman I can talk to the bowler about what he is thinking. As a player, I want to learn from everyone.

Pant is scoring runs at an average of over 43 in Tests

Rishabh Pant has scored more than 1400 runs in Test career so far with an average of over 43. He has scored three centuries in Tests and has taken 83 wickets behind the wicket. Earlier this year, he single-handedly led India to victory on the tour of Australia. Then in the home Test series against England too, this young player had a tremendous performance. Regarding this, he said, 'I think as a cricketer, I have changed in the last one year because even if your process is right, the results do not come in favor but but you have to trust the process and do it again and again. have to stay. I had faith in my process and now I am getting results.
