Shoaib Akhtar SAID THIS on Indian star Rishabh Pant’s Fitness

Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has been left impressed by wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant. The fast bowler has gone on to heap praises on the Indian star and called him a fearless cricketer while also pointing out a few flaws of the young 24-year-old batter.

What did Shoaib Akhtar say about Rishabh Pant?

Akhtar speaks on the range of shots Pant has to offer while recollecting his role in India’s wins in the recent past. The 46-year-old was heard speaking on his YouTube channel saying, “Rishabh Pant is a fearless cricketer. He has the cut shot, pull shot, reverse sweep, slog sweep and paddle sweep. He won the (Test) match in Australia, he won the match here (in England) and took India to a series victory single-handedly.”

Pant has turned himself to be a key figure in Indian cricket over the last few years. One of his most memorable contributions came in Australia during the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He went on to play an innings to remember scoring 89 runs off 138 balls at Gabba, Brisbane on the last day of the series decider and helped India retain the series by a 2-1 margin.

The 24-year-old also had a solid outing in India’s loss to England in the one-off Test at Edgbaston. He was also crucial in India’s T20I series win over the Three Lions helping the Men in Blue pocket the ODI series as well.

Rishabh Pant scored an unbeaten 125 off 113 balls in the 3rd ODI at Manchester helping his team chase down a total of 260 with ease. His maiden hundred in ODIs was the key for India in their five-wicket victory over England as the visitors clinched the series 2-1.

The former Pakistan speedster also added how he feels that Rishabh Pant is overweight.  Also, Akhtar has called the 24 year old to be a strong “good-looking” character who can emerge as a model and become a superstar in his country..

He said, “He is a little overweight. I hope he takes care of that. Because the Indian market is big. He’s good-looking. He can emerge as a model, earn in crores. Because whenever a person becomes a superstar in India, a lot of investment is made on them.”
