Rishabh Pant has been struggling with his form since the past six months now and did not play a single ODI or T20 against New Zealand. Pant played an amazing knock today.
He went on to score 70 runs in 65 balls. He hit 4 fours and four sixes with a massive strike rate of 107.69. This is a good sign for the team as well as Pant. After losing the ODI series by 5-0, it is important for India to make a come back in the test series.
The first test starts on 21st of February while practice tests against New Zealand XI are going on.
Other than Pant, Mayank Agarwal hit 81 of 99 balls today. The match was drawn as India scored 252/4 in the second inning and New Zealand didn’t get a chance to come for a second inning.
It will be an amazing sight to see if Rishabh Pant continues to maintain a good form and with the T20 world cup coming up this year, it is important for him to establish himself as a dependable player. With KL Rahul being the preferred choice as a wicketkeeper it will be difficult for Pant to save himself a spot in the team.
