- Yuzvendra Chahal has advised Rishabh Pant to join the ‘Apollo Circus’
- Pant recently posted a video of himself performing some acrobatic stunts in practice for India A
Yuzvendra Chahal is known to be a funny man and his sense of humour is evident in all of his interviews. Young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant became the latest victim of the leg-spinner’s funny bone after he was seen flaunting some acrobatic moves while taking part in India A’s practice session ahead of their game against England Lions.
In the absence of first-choice keeper Wriddhiman Saha, Dinesh Karthik will be India‘s preferred wicketkeeper in the Tests against England and Pant has also been drafted into the squad as the reserve keeper. This is the 20-year-old’s first ever call-up to the senior Test side and he is visibly on cloud nine at the moment.
The Delhi Daredevils batsman was in swashbuckling form in the recent IPL season and has carried his touch while playing red-ball cricket in tough English conditions. Pant has shown great temperament and patience levels which are required to success on English shores. The presence of a certain Rahul Dravid as coach has also helped him a great deal. In fact, the legendary batsman has also praised Pant’s performances on this tour and has backed him to shine in the longest format while playing for India.
Join the Apollo Circus, Chahal tells Pant
Pant has also been enjoying his time in England and recently posted a video on his Instagram account of him doing some amazing back-flips and front-flips while taking part in a practice session with his India A teammates. The post attracted a lot of views and was also liked by prominent Indian cricketers like Hardik Pandya and Suresh Raina.
However, Chahal could not stop himself at merely liking the video and went a step ahead as he commented in trademark style: “Apollo circus se offer aaya hai bro, Han kardun after seen ur dis video?”
Responding to this rather funny comment, Pant also joined in the fun and replied: “yes plz but I’ll be joining with you“.
With the T20 and ODI leg of the tour now done, the focus will soon shift to the much-awaited Test series where India will play as many as 5 Tests against Joe Root’s England. The series is being deemed as India’s best chance to register a rare win over England in their own backyard.
