Rishabh Pant’s stocks are on a rise at the moment. He is India’s wicket-keeper batsman in Test cricket. The left-hander has been remarkable in red-ball format and averages close to 50 after playing nine Tests. His amazing displays in Tests have also helped him get a place in the Indian squads for white-ball cricket.

After being ignored for the New Zealand ODIs, he has been selected for the five-match ODI series against Australia. His wicket-keeping has often been doubted but he is improving with time. And the Indian youngster has credited Kiran More for the improvement in his glovework.

In a chat with PTI, Pant said ” “Keeping in England was an altogether different experience. After that, I worked with Kiran sir at the NCA on a few specific areas. It included hand-positioning and body posture. Every keeper has distinct movement and I tweaked it a little and it worked”.

“When you make it to the team at a young age, the more you are keen to learn, the better you get at utilizing the opportunities that come your way,” the 21-year-old added.
