Pant was a member of the Indian side that defeated Bangladesh in a Test series by a score of 2-0 earlier this month. His knocks of 46 and 93 had made an impression.
He was scheduled to join the National Cricket Academy for a strength and conditioning program in preparation for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match against Australia in February but was recently cut from the T20I team named for the series against Sri Lanka.
Photos of Pant’s Christmas celebration in Dubai with former India captain MS Dhoni and his family were posted on social media by Sakshi Dhoni, Pant’s wife.
After MS Dhoni’s retirement, Pant has been India’s go-to wicketkeeper across all formats. Over the past two years, he has also been one of India’s best batsmen in Test cricket.
