In the Test series against Australia, young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pan made a great performance. The way he batted in the Sydney and Brisbane Tests broke the courage of the Australian team. Rishabh Pant again proved that he is the future of the Indian cricket team.
In such a situation, all eyes will be on the young player in the Test series against England. In the same episode, former England captain Michael Vaughan believes that Rishabh Pant of India can play well against England bowling line up like Virender Sehwag. He says that if Pant plays in his form then he can win the match for India.
Rishabh Pant won ICC Player of the Month award
Pant, one of the architects of India’s historic win last month in Australia, has also been nominated by the ICC for the award of the best player of the month on Tuesday. Vaughan compared Pant to England’s all-rounder Ben Stokes at the Sky Sports before the India-England Test series.
He said, ‘He is one of the most entertaining cricketers along with Ben Stokes. If he bats, I will see. At that time I do not want anyone else to play because a lot happens because of Pant being at the crease. If he continues to play with the same enthusiasm and energy as an 11-year-old, he will present great challenges for the opposing teams.
Vaughan compared Pant to Sehwag
Pant and Wriddhiman Saha are included in the Indian team in the Test series against England. However, Pant is likely to get a chance. Vaughn referring to Virender Sehwag said,
Sehwag used to throw away the rival bowlers and Pant has the same ability. He will make mistakes and will be dismissed on a low score but will also win the match.
Pant played well in the last two Tests in Australia
On the tour of Australia, 23-year-old Rishabh Pant was dropped from the team after the first Test in Adelaide. But he made a comeback in the Sydney Test. Here he scored 97 runs in the second innings and played a key role in India’s draw. Then he scored an unbeaten 89 in the second innings in Brisbane, winning the Test series in Australia for the second time in a row.
