Rishabh Pant has been exception in Test matches. The left-handed batter has played match winning innings against big teams like Australia and England. His performance in the last Test match at Gabba was lauded by everyone as it helped the team to win a game at the fortress of Australia.
Jos Buttler is a big time admirer of Pant in red-ball cricket. He recently praised the Indian player for his heroics in the longest format of the game.
“Rishabh Pant is one player I really enjoyed seeing in Tests in Australia. I love the way he can change his game, and be totally fearless. I’ll be trying to take that fearless attitude from the T20 World Cup to the Ashes”.
While Buttler had a phenomenal ICC T20 World Cup, Pant struggled to get going in the tournament. He has been rested for the T20Is and Test series against the visiting New Zealand team.
