India cricketer Suresh Raina has jumped into the defense of Rishabh Pant, he compared Rishabh Pant’s dominant nature with Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag.
The King of IPL feels R Pant can go on to become a top cricketer for the country as he possesses all the natural talent that a cricketer should.
“He is a top cricketer, when he plays well, you become happy and he reminds of Yuvraj and Sehwag, he is as dominant as them, when he plays the flick, it reminds you of Dravid as well,” Raina said during a video session on Instagram Live.
Earlier Vice-captain Rohit Sharma had also launched a passionate defense of Pant as well and had said that immense media scrutiny puts him under great pressure and one shouldn’t forget he is still young rn.
“I talk to Rishabh Pant more, he is just 20-21, he was under so much of scrutiny that he got tensed. Media thinks its part of their job to write but they should be sensible and think before writing something as it plays a huge part,” Rohit had said in a Live Session.
The veteran batter Raina also claimed that skipper Virat Kohli’s explosive energy in limited-overs cricket is key for his side.
