If in the last few months, the life of a player of a team of a country has traveled from floor to hail, then he is a batsman of Team India. The batsman whom Mathew Wade of the Australian team had taunted by claiming 25 kg overweight. The batsman who was not part of India’s ODI and T20 team on Australia tour. But the devastation that the player started from the test series played on the Australia tour is still continuing. And now that fire of the bat has intensified so much that the Indian Premier League has the ability to scorch every bowler of the opposition team in the 14th season starting from 9 April. The name of this batsman is Rishabh Pant. The same Pant who is also the captain of the Delhi Capitals team.
