Life/History of Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant was born on 4 October 1997 in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India to Rajendra Pant and Saroj Pant. From his childhood, he had only aimed to be a cricket player. So, at the age of 12, Pant would travel with his mother to Delhi during the weekends to get trained under Tarak Sinha at the Sonnet Cricket Academy.

He and his mother stayed at a Gurdwara in Moti Bagh locality as they did not have a place to stay in the city. Sinha suggested Pant switch to Rajasthan to play U-13 and U-15 cricket but to no avail. Pant was told by his mentor to overhaul his entire batting technique which based on Hand-eye coordination to become a better batsman. 

His turning point came when he was playing U-19 cricket for Delhi against Assam. Pant had top-scored with 35 but was severely reprimanded by the coach for giving his wicket away at a hat-trick. He then hit 150 in the second innings which he claims was the most important knock in his career.

On 22 October 2015, he made his first-class debut in the Ranji Trophy (2015-2016). He made his debut in Vijay Hazare Trophy. While playing a match against Maharashtra in the Ranji Trophy(2016-2017), Pant scored 308 runs in an innings, becoming the third-youngest Indian to score a triple century in first-class cricket. Pant scored his fastest century in Ranji Trophy just in 48 balls,on 8 November 2016 against Jharkhand.

He was named as the captain of the Delhi team in the Vijay Hazare Trophy (2016-2017). Delhi defeated the team led by Gautam Gambhir and move towards the final.  Delhi coach Bhaskar Pillai said it was a “consensus decision” to blood Pant for the future.In the Zonal Cup(2017-2018) he scored his second fastest century in a T20 match, making 100 from 32 balls against Himanchal Pradesh.

On 6 February 2016, Pant was bought by Delhi Daredevils for Rs 1.9 crore. On the same day, he scored a century for India U-19 in the World Cup, taking India into the semi-finals.

Pant was bought by the Delhi Daredevils in the 2016 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction. Playing only his third game of his IPL season, Pant made 69 runs from 40 balls to help Delhi to an eight-wicket victory over Gujarat Lions. He made his maiden IPL half-century off 25 balls. In the 2017 season, he scored 97 runs in 43 balls against the same team in Delhi on 4 May.

In May 2018, during the 2018 Indian Premier League, Pant scored 128 not out from 63 balls against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, making the then highest individual score by an Indian cricketer in IPL history, but later K. L. Rahul broke his record by scoring132 runs for Kings XI Punjab. In March 2021, Due to the injury of Shreyas Iyer, Pant was named as the captain of the Delhi Capitals for the 2021 Indian Premier League.

On 10 April 2021, against the Chennai Super Kings, Pant played his first match as the Delhi Capitals captain and became the 4th youngest Indian and 5th youngest overall to captain an IPL side. Pant won his first match as an IPL captain, as Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets. Later DC defeated PBKS, MI, SRH & KKR.

In January 2017, Pant was included in India’s T20I squad for their series against England. Pant was the youngest player of India to debut in T20I (19 years 120 days )but later Washington Sundar(18 years 80 days) broke his record by making his debut on 2017.

In July 2018, Pant was named in India’s Test squad for the series against England. He made his Test debut against England on 18 August 2018. He became the first batsman for India to get off the mark in Test cricket with a six. On 11 September 2018, Pant scored his maiden Test century, against England. He became the second-youngest wicket-keeper and the first Indian wicket-keeper to score a Test century in England. 

The following month, he was named in India’s One Day International (ODI) squad for their series against the West Indies. He made his ODI debut for India against the West Indies on 21 October 2018.

In December 2018, during the first Test against Australia, Pant took eleven catches, the most by a wicket-keeper for India in a Test match. In January 2019, during the fourth Test against Australia, Pant became the first wicket-keeper for India to score a century in a Test match in Australia.

In June 2019, Pant was called up to India’s squad at the 2019 Cricket World Cup as cover for Shikhar Dhawan, who suffered a hairline fracture on his left thumb during India’s game against Australia.  On 19 June 2019, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that Dhawan had been ruled out for the rest of the tournament, with Pant confirmed as his replacement. Following the World Cup, the International Cricket Council (ICC) named Pant as the rising star of the squad.

In September 2019, during the second Test against the West Indies, Pant became the fastest wicket-keeper for India to affect fifty dismissals in Test cricket. In January 2021, during the fourth Test against Australia, Pant became the fastest wicket-keeper for India to reach 1,000 runs in Test cricket.

The 2019-20 home season was billed as an important season for Rishabh Pant. MS Dhoni had announced retirement from international cricket and India went into the season in search of a new wicket-keeping mainstay with Pant as one of the front-runners.  However, ordinary performances from the left-hander and the emergence of KL Rahul as a wicket-keeping option meant that Pant slipped down the pecking order.

A dismal show in the 2020 IPL season didn’t help either. Pant, who had scored a cumulative 1172 runs with a strike rate of 168 in the last two seasons, only managed to amass 343 runs with a strike rate of 113. His only fifty came in the finals, that too in a losing cause. Pant was consequently dropped from the limited-overs team touring Australia in 2020-21. He, however, kept his place in the Test team but did not make it to the playing eleven of the first Test in Adelaide.

During this period, Pant was heavily criticized by fans and the media. Disdainful comparisons with Indian Cricket legend MS Dhoni were often brought up. There were instances of the crowd chanting “Dhoni! Dhoni!” when Pant made a mistake on the field.

The rise of Rishab Pant began from the Border Gavaskar Trophy(2020-2021). Indians fans saw a new Rishab Pant. India was bowled out for 36 in the second innings of the first Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21 and hence lost the test by 8 wickets despite getting a healthy first-innings lead. The unavailability of Virat Kohli for the rest of the series made India make changes to their lineup so as to strengthen the batting. Rishabh Pant was picked instead of Wriddhiman Saha for the second test in Melbourne.

While Pant scored a valuable 29 in the first innings of the Melbourne Test, it was at Sydney that he played a career-changing knock. With 97 overs to survive on the last day, things did not start well for India as they lost the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane, who had scored a century in the last test, early in the day. With Jadeja having fractured his arm earlier in the match, India was also a batsman short. Pant had also suffered a minor injury in the match.  

Yet, he was promoted in the order and came out to bat at 5. He hit 12 fours and 3 sixes in his counter-attacking knock of 97 run off just 118 balls. His 148-run partnership with Pujara put India in a winning position. The match would ultimately end in a draw rendering the 4th Test in Brisbane to be the final.

Australia had not been defeated at Brisbane since 1988. India had a bunch of their first-choice players – Jasprit Bumrah,  Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, Hanuma Vihari, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma – unavailable due to injury. Rishabh Pant put in a match-winning performance on day 5 as India chased down a big target of 328 in the 4th innings. 

Pant scored an unbeaten 89 with 9 fours and a six and also hit the winning runs . Pant was considered as the Hero of the Border Gavaskar Trophy.

Top 5 Rishabh Pant Quotes

In red ball cricket, with the field placements, you can look around, take your time, because you have five days to play, whereas in limited overs cricket, you have limited number of balls to play and score.

I always look at the positive side of things. Wicketkeeping is all about the feel. And I got a good feel about my wicketkeeping in England. So I didn't look too much at the scoreboard.

It was a great feeling to be included in the Indian Test squad. I always wanted to be a part of the Indian Test squad, and it was more like a dream come true for me.

Of course, there are ups and downs in cricket always, but that's how you learn. I am too young, and what I constantly do is learn from my seniors. They have been in tough situations, and they know how to tackle them. I just keep learning.

I played a lot of my early cricket in Haridwar and Dehradun. But I just had to come to Delhi if I had to make a career out of it.
