The Indian wicket-keeper batsman, Rishabh Pant is known for his love for cartoons as it was evidently been seen during the recently concluded Gabbaa Test in Brisbane where the young gloveman was seen singing the Hindi version of ‘Spiderman’ theme song. Pant, India’s hero of Gabba, took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal his liking for another famous cartoon character — ‘Tom’.
Rishabh Pant uploaded an image of himself in which he can be seen wearing a t-shirt that had Tom’s face printed on it. Captioning the picture, Pant wrote: “How many of you have watched this cartoon? #17,” Pant captioned the image.” Soon after he posted the pic, Yuzvendra Chahal took a cheeky dig at the wicketkeeper-batsman.
Commenting on Pant’s image, Chahal wrote: “You or Tom bro?” Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan also decided to join Chahal in teasing Pant. With multiple laughing emojis, Rashid commented, “I watch many time both you and Tom”.
In his last international outing, Pant played an unbeaten match-winning knock of 89 in the fourth innings in the Brisbane Test to steer India to a memorable series-clinching victory. He also played a fiery knock of 97 in the drawn Test in Sydney.
As a result of his brilliant innings on Day 5 in Brisbane, Risahbh Pant was adjudged player of the match for his match-winning knock that helped India win the four-match Test series 2-1 and retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
After a historic series win in Australia, the Indian team will now be hosting England for a four-match Test series, five Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and three One-Day Internationals. The tour is scheduled to be commencing with the Test series, starting on February 5.
