India vs England second Test is underway and India’s wicket-keeper batsman, Rishabh Pant is all set to make an impact on the game. But recently, he was seen taking some inspiration from his captain Virat Kohli about his fitness. The captain seems to have inspired a few other players in the team with the fitness mantras. Rishabh pant too took to Instagram to post a video of himself performing a front-flip and also a WWE Star Shawn Michaels’ style kick-up.
Cricketer Suresh Raina also commented with emojis that lauded Pant’s antics. In recent days, Pant has been very active on social media and many fans are loving to see this side of India’s wicket-keeper.
Here’s the recent video:
But why are people commenting ‘Spiderman’ on the post?
Recently, during the series against Australia, he was heard singing the song. “Spiderman-Spiderman, tuney churaya mere dil ka chain”
Whenever young wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant is on the field, he often grabs the limelight by his on-field antics. Rishabh Pant continues to do a lot of talking behind the wickets. Pant’s comments behind the stumps also went viral on the first day of the Chennai Test. The same happened on the second day. When the Indian bowlers were struggling to get wickets on a flat Chepauk pitch, Pant was constantly cheering the bowlers and fielders. The stump mic picked up all the funny conversations that Rishabh Pant had. Pant wanted Ashwin to bowl outside the off-stump to the left handed Burns, thus, to encourage him he said: “Idhar se badhiya hai, Udhar se phasega to maza aaega” (It will be fun to see him get trapped from that side)
It will be interesting to look at Pant in the second Test match.
