Rishabh Pant

India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant will return to international cricket in the T20 World Cup 2024. After missing many crucial games for the team due to the horrific accident, he returned to the team for the World Cup.

Rishabh Pant returned to cricket in IPL 2024 and showed a sinister touch with the bat and also looked extremely fit while maintaining it. Due to his excellent performance in the league, where he scored more than 400 runs, he was included in the squad for the 2024 T20 World Cup.

On Saturday (May 25), Rishabh Pant joined the Indian team and was seen boarding the flight for the T20 World Cup 2024 along with the other team members. The team led by Rohit Sharma left for New York from Mumbai.

Rishabh Pant, however, caught the attention of many with his gesture. As he walked inside the airport, a member of the media staff asked him to return home with a trophy. The wicketkeeper-batsman came with a smile and a thumbs up and the video went viral on the Internet.

Here is the video:

Rishabh Pant is likely to be the first choice wicketkeeper for the Indian team in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. The wicketkeeper-batsman played some incredible knocks in the league and scored 446 runs, with an average of 40 and a strike rate 155 in the 13 games he played.

Rishabh Pant will be extremely crucial for the team in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. The left-hander will play the finisher role for the team. He would love to make an impact in the tournament and lead his team to glory in what will be his return match for India after a while.

The T20 World Cup 2024 will begin from June 2. India will begin their campaign against Ireland on June 5. They are placed in Group A, alongside Ireland, the host United States, Canada and arch-rival Pakistan.

The likes of Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav along with Rishabh Pant and the coaching staff were seen boarding the flight. They will first travel to Dubai and then move to New York.
