When the Indian players were on break, Rishabh Pant was seen watching one of the Euro matches with his friends. Rishabh Pant was isolated at a friend’s residence after a positive test for Covid-19. As a result, he did not accompany the squad to Durham and was forced to miss the three-day practice Test match versus the Select County XI.
Rishabh Pant, on the other hand, is expected to wear the wicketkeeper’s gloves in the first Test in the five-match Test series against England, which begins on August 4th. India will be hoping for a new beginning in the WTC cycle after losing in the final to New Zealand.
Rishabh Pant was also a member of Team India’s last Test team, which travelled in 2018. Even though India lost the series 1-4, there were lots of good things, one of which was Rishabh Pant’s breakthrough as an adventurous and reckless keeper-batsman as an option to Wriddhiman Saha.
Pant had made his series debut, to be fair. Rishabh Pant has confirmed his place in the Test team after a magnificent debut in which he scored 207 runs in four matches, including an incredible 114 in the last Test match. Since the series, he has compiled a total of 1358 runs and has been a crucial member of Team India’s Test team.
