The young Indian wicket-keeper batsmen, Rishabh Pant, and the left-arm spinner, Axar Patel share a great camaraderie. That was once again on display on social media as the latter pulled Pant’s leg over his recent post on Instagram. Both Pant and Patel are currently in the United Kingdom as a part of India’s 24-member squad for the ongoing 5-match Test series against England. Currently, the Indian team is having a 1-0 lead in the series.

Rishabh Pant And Axar Patel

While Pant has been a part of the playing XI for both the Tests so far, India playing only a lone spinner in Ravindra Jadeja has meant that Patel has been warming the bench. Meanwhile, on Sunday, Pant posted a picture on his official Instagram account where he can be seen posing besides the wall in casual wear. Rishabh Pant captioned the post as: “Class ka sabse shareef ladka”, which translates to “the most well-mannered boy in the class.”

Notably, the picture was captured by Axar Patel, who hilariously replied to Pant’s post as: “wo jo hai photo le raha tha,” meaning “The well-mannered boy is the one who took the picture.” The duo was earlier also seen training in the gym ahead of the series. Rishabh Pant, who so far has scores of 25, 37, and 22 in the first two Tests, will feature in the third Test against England, which goes underway from August 25.

While the photo itself was an instant hit, the banter started by Axar in the comments section was continued by Ishant Sharma, who eventually stole the show. Ishant bagged the win, by replying on Axar Patel’s comment saying, “bapu shareef or tu bhi, well done” which translates to, “you calling yourself well-mannered?”.
