Recently, Rishabh Pant is active in online interaction with his IPL franchise Delhi Capitals revealed that his favorite batting partner is MS Dhoni.
Indian batsman Rishabh Pant has chosen former captain, MS Dhoni, as his “favorite batting partner”. The 22-year-old batsman said that Dhoni lays out a “plan” which makes it “easy” for the batsman at the other end. Pant, the wicket-keeper-batsman has played a key role in the batting order of Delhi Capitals franchise in the IPL. The left-handed batsman missed out the IPL Orange Cap in 11th edition of the tournament, but his 684 runs from 14 innings were the bright spot for Delhi Capitals.
“My favorite batting partner is Mahi Bhai (MS Dhoni) but it’s rare that I get a chance to bat with him. If Dhoni is out there batting with you, things remain sorted. He lays out the plan and you have to just follow him. The way his mind works during chases is amazing,” said Pant during an online interaction with Delhi Capitals.
“Virat bhai (Virat Kohli), Rohit bhai (Rohit Sharma) actually, whenever you bat with senior players, it’s a different experience altogether. Even when I am batting with Shreyas Iyer in IPL, it’s different chemistry altogether,” he added.
Rishabh pant would have been in action for the Delhi Capitals if the IPL had started from March 29. However, the tournament was postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
