Pant who is currently with the Indian test team for the Bangladesh Test series scored a crucial 46 runs and helps India to score 404 runs for 10 wickets loss in the first inning.
“Rishabh Pant was playing the way he likes to, but he went for something innovative and got out. It was a weird dismissal as the ball hit the bat, and pad before rattling the stumps.
I always speak on Rishabh Pant’s fitness because the kind of shots he plays and tries to innovate, it would be easier for him execute those shots if he was fit. I think he is overweight.
Definitely, he is overweight and because of that, he is not very agile. He is under the level where he should be, in terms of fitness,” Butt said in a video uploaded on his YouTube channel.
As far as the match is concerned India is in a strong position with a lead of 420+ runs during the 3rd session of Day 3.
Rishabh Pant made his Test debut in August 2018 against England. Having played all formats for India, he is best known for his consistency to score runs in Test cricket.
So far Pant played 32 Tests and scored 2169 runs which include 5 centuries and 10 half-centuries.
