Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is very open about his relationship status. Several times he has posted his pictures with his girlfriend Isha Negi on social media. Some media reports suggest the Rishabh Pant had dumped Bollywood actress Urvashi Rautela for his rumored girlfriend.
Rishabh Pant’s girlfriend reveals her favorite cricketer
Meanwhile, Isha Negi hosted an ‘Ask me anything’ session on her Instagram account. Fans asked several questions to the girlfriend of Rishabh Pant. A fan asked to name her favorite cricketer. Everyone was expecting the answer to be Rishabh Pant, however, she responded with a picture of MS Dhoni.
MS Dhoni is also an idol for Rishabh Pant. The successor of Dhoni gives a hefty credit to the former Indian captain. “He (Dhoni) has been like a mentor to me, on and off the field. I can approach him freely with any problem I may be facing, and he will never give me the entire solution for it,” Pant said in 2020.
Pant’s career is back on track
The talented youngster is having the best year of his cricket career. However, the wicket-keeper batsman’s career was going downhill in 2020. The 23-year old didn’t have a good time with the bat in IPL 2020. Pant could score 343 runs in 14 matches for Delhi Capitals. The poor performance led selectors to drop him from the Indian limited-overs teams. The keeper-batsman didn’t find his name in ODI and T20I squads for the Australia tour.
However, his exceptional performance in test series on Australian soil revived his place in the Indian blues. And this time Rishabh Pant didn’t disappoint the selectors. He has continued his form in the home limited-overs series against England. Rishabh Pant’s fortune didn’t end here. The 23-year old has replaced injured Shreyas Iyer as Delhi Capitals skipper. He will be the youngest captain in IPL 2021 at the age of 23.
