Prodigy Delhi wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant is all praise for idol MS Dhoni for his support throughout his career.
The BCC has included Rishabh Pant in the 18-member Indian squad for the five-match Test series against England, awarding his good performances for India A and in the IPL.
The India A tours were conducted with a vision of preparing young players for foreign tours and making them comfortable in overseas conditions. Players such as Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari have performed exceedingly well on the tour.

Rishabh Pant has broken through in the Test team at a very young age and has a bright future ahead of him.
In an interview with bcci.tv, Pant has heaped fraise on his idol and veteran keeper-batsman MS Dhoni for his support throughout his career.
“Whenever I needed any support from Mahi bhai, I used to ask him. From my IPL contract to my wicket-keeping, he’s advised me on everything.
“He’s always told me that when it comes to wicket-keeping, your hands and head coordination is important, the body balance can come into play later. That (his advice) has helped me a lot,” added the left-handed Delhi batsman,” Pant said.
Pant had been in the India A tour and he came up with rich dividends. He is considered the next Indian wicket keeper after MS Dhoni decides to hang his boots. The Delhi keeper-batsman had a memorable IPL 2018 and was in contention for the Purple cap.
