Rishabh Pant is a member of the Indian cricket team, which will play South Africa in a T20I series at home. Pant's performance will be scrutinized because he had a poor IPL season and would like to help the team. Although Pant's place in the team is secure, he will want to maintain his reputation as India's top wicket-keeper batter with strong performances.
Pant's wicket-keeping abilities have vastly improved as he has progressed through his international cricket career. Pant discussed how he got into wicket-keeping early in his career in a recent podcast.
"I am trying to give my 100 percent in each game. I was always a wicket-keeper batsman. As a kid I started doing wicket-keeping. My father was a wicket-keeper too. That's how I started wicket-keeping,"
Rishabh Pant's Delhi Capitals missed out on a place in the IPL 2022 playoffs. Some of Pant's decision-making as captain was in the focus after Delhi's ouster.
He has been chosen as vice-captain for the upcoming series, where India will be led by K LRahul as Rohit Sharma has been rested.
