Rishabh Pant is currently the most talked-about cricketer in India and perhaps in the world as well. Not only because of his cricketing prowess but also his off-field life as well. There was one situation with actress Urvashi Rautela and his fans went crazy when he revealed his girlfriend Isha Negi.
Pant had been having a golden time in cricket recently, as he made a triumphant comeback into the Indian team on the tour of Australia in the Test series. He made 97 in Sydney Test and then scored 89* in Brisbane Test, which India won and also pocketed the series 2-1.
Pant continued his golden run with gloves and bat against England at home, where he made everyone fan of his improved wicketkeeping skills on turning pitches in Chennai and Ahmedabad. He also slammed two half-centuries and one century. He then carried the same form in the T20I and ODI series as well, as India beat the no.1 ranked T20I side and the current world champions.
Rishabh Pant’s Girlfriend Isha Negi Reveals Her Favorite Cricketer
Rishabh Pant revealed that he had a special lady friend Isha Negi some time back in 2019 with an Instagram post. Negi also hails from Dehradun, Pant’s home town and has been a BA English honors student of Delhi’s famous Amity University. Her Instagram profile states that she is an Entrepreneur – Interior Decor Designer.
Recently, Isha Negi was asked on her Instagram who her favorite cricketer was. Many expected the answer to be none other than Rishabh Pant. However, they were in for a shock, as hilariously she revealed that her favorite cricketer was in fact Pant’s predecessor MS Dhoni.
MS Dhoni retired from international cricket in 2020 and Pant had taken over from the great man after the ICC World Cup 2019, when Dhoni had played his last international match in the semi-final of the tournament.
On the other hand, Rishabh Pant endured a terrible 2019 and 2020 which included him being dropped from the Indian white-ball teams and KL Rahul being given the wicketkeeping roles. However, Pant has roared back mighty and will be seen leading the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2021 edition after captain Shreyas Iyer was ruled out of the tournament due to injury.
Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals play their first match against Isha Negi’s favorite cricketer MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings on April 10.
