Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel are two prominent members of Indian cricket. The duo shares a great bond together. Indian players are known for pulling each other’s leg on social media posts and a recent post by Rishabh Pant showed just that. Recently, the Indian wicket-keeper batsman uploaded a picture on Instagram and captioned it as “Class ka sabse shareef ladka”, which roughly translates to “the most well-mannered boy in the class.”
His ally, Axar Patel noticed the pictured and was quick to leave a comment on the post. Incidentally, the picture was taken by Axar Patel and he told to the viewers about the same with a cheeky comment. He wrote, “Wo jo hai photo le raha tha” implying “The most well-mannered boy is the one who took the picture.”
Both Axar Patel and Rishabh Pant are currently part of the Indian Cricket Team, which is playing a five-match Test series against England. Pant has been a regular member of the Indian Cricket Team across formats and thus played both the two Tests. Axar Patel, on the other hand, warmed the benches and is unlikely to feature in the playing in any game during the series. Rishabh Pant is yet to score a half-century in the series. He hasn’t had a lot of success in the Test series with the bat thus far. He would be keen to play a telling knock in the third Test.
India is currently leading the five-match Test series 1-0, with 3 matches left to be played. Meanwhile, Virender Sehwag has advised Pant to not go outside his crease while facing English bowlers. Here’s what he said:
“He will also have to understand, as he keeps playing cricket going forward, that he is uncomfortable against that line and length. So he will have to improve there. Either he has to leave them or hit. It is not that the ball was going away too much with the angle; it is near the off stump. But if it comes in from there, he is neither going to get LBW nor bowled,” he was quoted as saying.
Team India will lock horns with England in the third Test commencing on August 25 at Headingley.
