The gifted cricketer, who is undergoing multiple surgeries on his knee and heel, is well-known for his dynamic batting and lively banter behind the stumps.
The absence of Rishabh Pant from the Indian team has caused a popular song from the 2000s by The Bharat Army to resurface online. In the tune of, “Pant is on our side. Pant, Rishab. Just don’t think you’ll get it. He will knock you out cold. He’s available to watch the kids. Now we have Rishab Pant, “brings out the cricketer’s special qualities and character.
After India won a historic Test series against Australia in 2019, Rishabh Pant thanked The Bharat Army by dancing to the song during a postgame celebration. He had a stellar game, and this song was written to celebrate it.
According to former Australian cricket captain Ian Chappell, Rishabh Pant’s absence will be felt in the upcoming Border Gavaskar Trophy, where his quick and game-changing counter-attacking style would have given the Australian team sleepless nights. Rishabh Pant is a dangerous opponent, according to Chappell, because he can turn the tide of a match in a single session.
Even though Rishabh Pant’s absence will be keenly felt in the Border Gavaskar Trophy, the impact he made during his time on the field and the viral song by The Bharat Army will ensure that his legacy will endure.
