Star Indian batsman, Suresh Raina is all praise for his teammate Rishabh Pant. Suresh Raina who is training along with his Indian teammates in Ghaziabad praised young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant for his spectacular performances.
Pant is looked as MS Dhoni’s future replacement due to his spectacular wicket-keeping tricks & batting strategy. Rishabh saw several ups & downs in his career during 2019 & 2020 & was unexpectedly replaced in the playing XI by KL Rahul. Raina, who has been training with Pant, said that the left-hander is a gun player and can do miracles for the team.
Speaking for the Star Sports Chat Show Cricket Connected Raina said, “I have been practising with Rishabh Pant. He was hitting the ball very well. Then I had a net with Shami. All bowlers have been coming here and practicing. Piyush Chawla also came, he bowled really well.”
“I have been speaking to a lot of the players, everything has been planned. Deepak Chahar has been playing and MS Dhoni is also training hard at his home. Everyone has to do it because this game requires lot of fitness, lot of commitment,” he added.
Talking about Pant, Raina further said: “I think Rishabh Pant has been amazing. He has scored a lot of runs for the country as well as in the IPL and in domestic cricket. He has got two Test hundreds. He played really well in T20s as well as ODIs.”
“I think he is a gun player, he has a quality future. He needs to be really looked after by his teammates. And then you will see lot of great performances coming from him very soon,” he added.
When asked about the preparations for the upcoming season of IPL in UAE Raina said, “We are going to have a camp. We have lots to do, we are going there I think 18-20 days before. It is good to go early because IPL is coming and we have been under lockdown for 4-5 months. So, it is good to be there before IPL and it is going to be exciting.”
