Suryakumar Yadav recalls a witty incident with Rishabh Pant . Pant has been heard singing behind the stumps on several occasions.
Suryakumar Yadav, a Mumbai Indians and India batter, has been in the Indian camp for quite some time and has spent a significant amount of time with the team’s players. Rishabh Pant, India’s wicketkeeper batter, is one such player to whom he is close. Surya, like every other cricket fan, enjoys Rishabh Pant’s tantrums from behind the stumps.
While wearing the gloves, he either makes amusing remarks or entertains himself by singing a song or acting out a dialogue. When Rishabh is wicketkeeping, the on-field batter has to go through a lot. And Suryakumar has spoken out about it, revealing how Pant manages to have fun even in stressful situations.
Suryakumar Yadav recalled some hilarious moments from the India vs. England Test match, where he was a part of the game, fielding at silly point as a substitute fielder for Cheteshwar Pujara, on Gaurav Kapur’s YouTube show Breakfast with Champions. “Once upon a time, I was fielding at silly point for Puji bhai in a Test in England,” he recalled. The match situation was precarious. ‘Bhaiya chai samosa, kuch du?’ Pant exclaims. Over and out, hogaya. ‘Uthjao!’ (Do you need anything, bro? Tea or samosa? Get up now, the game is over!)”
Rishabh Pant moves fielders during games for no apparent reason because he is bored.
Suryakumar Yadav also discussed Rishabh Pant’s field tactics, specifically how the 24-year-old keeps changing the field settings with perplexing hand gestures. He revealed how, when bored, the left-hander makes gestures asking a fielder to move from a point of fielding, even if he does not want the player to move.
“Rishabh is too good at keeping.” He only moves me 20 cm. He does this (hand gestures) occasionally, and it confuses me as to where I should go. Then he says, ‘nothing, bhaiya, I was just bored.’ Please take a seat wherever you are,” he added.
