Former Team India selector Kiran More’s big claim: Rishabh Pant, the young wicketkeeper-batsman of the Indian cricket team, is currently in his best form.
Pant has regained his form from the Australian tour and has retained this form against England. Along with his batting, Rishabh Pant also performed well behind the wicket.
Former selector of the Indian cricket team, Kiran More told how Pant was noted in his mobile when he was just 17 years old.
The former India selector said that in the year 2014, Pant had scored 186 runs in 133 balls in an under-19 match.
And then he had noted the name of Rishabh Pant in his mobile. Kiran More said, whenever I see a talented player.
So I note all of them on my mobile. I said at that time that this player is a very long racehorse. Now I would like to say that this young wicketkeeper-batsman of India is the player to play at least 100 matches in Test cricket.
Superb character and fighting spirit on display.🙌 Well done boys. The focus is now on the next one. 🇮🇳💪 pic.twitter.com/TEVceiOhYM

He also said that I am not speaking on the basis of wicketkeeping performance in the second Test against England.
Young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has really worked hard in Australia. When he comes to wicketkeeping, you can find out the difference from his reaction.
They have reduced their weight significantly in Australia. The way he was wicketkeeping on Chennai’s Turning wicket was visible.
We all want Pant to improve even more as a wicketkeeper because we know his value in the team. We raised a lot of questions about his wicketkeeping.
But I never commented on him. When you will not allow a child to play in India, then how will he get a chance to learn.
By the way, playing abroad is much more difficult than playing in India. It is my opinion, a wicketkeeper is always involved in playing on the Turning pitch. Everyone saw what he can do against England.
