With the third Test between Indian and Australia just a couple of days far, players from both sides are giving their all in the gyms and net sessions to get themselves ready for the much-important game at the Sydney Cricket Ground. With the series locked at 1-1, a win for either side will ensure that they don’t lose the series. The young Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant on Tuesday took to Twitter and shared a video of himself training hard in the gym.
However, unlike normal workout sessions, Rishabh Pant decided to follow some unusual routine as he can be seen doing multiple front handsprings in the video in order to enhance his body movement. Captioning the video on Twitter, Pant said, “Good day at the lab.”
