Former captain of Pakistan Inzamam-ul-Haq compared Rishabh pantsbatting to that of the former Indian opener swashbuckling Virender Sehwag. According to Inzamam, when he sees Rishabh Pant, he feels like he is watching Sehwag fight with a southpaw.
Praising the 23-year-old as he spoke on his YouTube channel, the former Pakistani captain felt the pressure didn’t seem to be affecting Rishabh Pant’s game.
“Rishabh Pant, absolutely brilliant. After a long while I saw a player that the pressure seemed to have no effect on. Even though six wickets are down to 146, the way he starts his innings, no one is. does. He plays his shots, regardless of the terrain or how many runs the other team has. He’s as good against spinners as he is against fast bowlers. I really like watching him. It’s like watching. Sehwag beat with a southpaw. “
Drawing comparisons between Rishabh Pant and Sehwag, Inzamam added:
“I played with Sehwag and he didn’t care about other factors either. When he was hitting, he didn’t care what the pitch was or what type of bowling attack the opponent was doing. He just had to play his own. shots, even though the outfielders were on the limit. After Sehwag, I saw such a player, for whom nothing else matters. “
Rishabh Pant’s hundred in the fourth test in Ahmedabad turned the tide after England valiantly defended themselves with the ball. The goalkeeper-batter smashed 101 out of 118 balls, a shot that featured 13 fours and two sixes, the second of which elevated his century.

“India had Sachin, Dravid now they have Virat and Rohit. But the way he plays, it’s amazing. The kind of self-confidence he has is surprising. I haven’t met a cricketer like him, ”he added.
