After winning the five-match ODI series 4-1 against New Zealand, now the team will lock horns with hosts in three-match T20I series. Ahead of the first T20I in Wellington on Wednesday, Rishabh Pant, who was overlooked from the ODI side was seen sweating it out in the nets to get himself in the groove in what can be a golden opportunity for him to prove his credentials in white-ball cricket and perhaps, audition for a spot in middle-order for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
In a video shared by BCCI, the Indian youngster was seen playing an audacious shot in the form of reverse flick. He changed his stance at the very last moment and then flicked a full ball with perfection.
