Watch: Rishabh Pant’s Playful Imitation of Irfan Pathan Sparks Social Media Buzz

Delhi Capitals’ captain, Rishabh Pant, caused a stir on Instagram with a cheeky post showcasing his bowling skills, mimicking the action of former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan during a net session. Pant playfully questioned if DC required his services as a genuine all-rounder, prompting a response from Pathan himself, who humorously noted their similarities yet differences.

Pant’s antics on social media come amidst his stellar performance in the ongoing Indian Premier League season, where he leads the run charts for DC. With 413 runs from 12 games at an impressive average of 41.30 and a striking rate of 156.44, Pant has been instrumental in DC’s resurgence after a slow start.

The resurgence of Delhi Capitals, currently positioned fifth in the league table, can also be attributed to the stellar performances of youngsters like Jake Fraser-McGurk, Kuldeep Yadav, and Tristan Stubbs, who have flourished under the guidance of seasoned campaigners like Pant and Axar Patel. With playoff hopes alive, DC faces crucial encounters against RCB and LSG in their remaining matches, aiming to secure a spot in the knockout stage.
