Indian National Cricket team wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is currently on cloud nine for his on-field performances. However, it seems like he is not lagging behind off the field as he has found his lady love. Earlier today, Pant along with his girlfriend Isha Negi took to Instagram to announce the news.

Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant showed tremendous form in the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Test series. After struggling in the opening fixture, Pant bounced back in Sydney to smack an unbeaten 159. His glorious innings propelled many former cricketers to back him for all the formats. However, surprisingly, Rishabh Pant had to make way for the former India skipper MS Dhoni. But MSK Prasad has cleared all the air saying that the Delhi lad is still in the scheme of things.
“Rishabh Pant played three T20Is and four Test matches in Australia and that had an impact on his body,” Prasad told PTI. “He needed complete rest for two weeks and then we will take a call on how many matches he will play against England Lions. Let me put it straight, he is very much in our World Cup plans.
“He is a champion player in the making and even he is not fully aware the kind of potential he has,” Prasad said. “He proved that he can switch gears seamlessly. When we picked him for Tests, experts were skeptical about his keeping but 11 catches in a Test, record dismissals in Australia series proves that the selection committee is vindicated,” he added.
Although Rishabh Pant is out of action from the one-dayers but he is actually enjoying some time off from the game. He also found her lady love interior decor designer Isha Negi, who took to Instagram to announce the news.
“My man, my soulmate, my best friend, the love of my life. @rishabpant,” Negi wrote.
