We have only seen less of Rishabh Pant – Glenn Maxwell
Glenn Maxwell believes that Australia has seen only the surface of Rishabh Pant as far as his talent is concerned. He showered high praise of words on the Indian youngster for his incredible batting skills, which he displayed during the Indian Premier League 2018.
Further, he went on to add saying that he would like to be glued to the television whenever he comes to the crease. Maxwell feels that Rishabh Pant is shaping his gymnastic skills as well to become the fittest cricketer in the times to come.
“He’s an amazing talent. We have only seen him scratch the surface in terms of his ability,” Maxwell told reporters on Thursday. “I’ve been glued to my TV every time he’s come out to bat … if he does get going, it’s pretty good to watch.
“He’s extremely talented … he played some extraordinary innings for us over there. He got an amazing hundred, where he just kept reserve-scooping balls with a straight bat, over the third man for six. I think he was a gymnast growing up, so he’s extremely flexible. He can manipulate his body into different positions to hit the ball.”
Well, as Glenn Maxwell said, Rishabh Pant has got tremendous skills in his kitty to make it big for India. However, he needs to apply his skills on the field to make things happen for him to register scores on the board.
