Rishabh Pant has stated that he is not thinking about the World Cup. According to him, his sole focus is on the IPL and he wants to win the T20 league for his franchise. The left hand batsman is in tussle with Dinesh Karthik for the second wicket-keeper’s slot.

“Frankly, I am not thinking about the World Cup. Yes, looking back the season; it has been a good year for me. On a personal level, it’s good going. Of course, there are ups and downs in cricket always but that’s how you learn. I am too young and what I constantly do is learn from my seniors. They have been in tough situations and they know how to tackle them. I just keep learning,” added Pant, speaking to Mail Today in Gurugram.

Pant will go by what Virat Kohli wants out of him and he will stick to his aggressive batting style.

“There’s been a pressure, I know that. But I’m not thinking about it too much. I’m learning from every game and trying to make a difference. I will do what the skipper wants me to do. He will tell me where to bat, where to play and at what position. I will stick to my game and try to do the best for the team.”
