Delhi Capitals (DC) players Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Avesh Khan have shared some childhood memories of playing cricket. However, Pant is currently leading the team while Iyer was the captain until last year.

However, a shoulder injury during the first half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 ruled him out of the league as well. However, on Thursday, they shared a video on their Twitter account, where they recalled their cricketing days while they were kids.

“In my hometown Roorkee, there was an open ground close to my home. Some or the other construction used to go on around the place. So we used to bring bricks from the construction site and make wickets out of it by placing them in a horizontal manner and then play matches,” Rishabh Pant recalled. 

“Sometimes, I used to get out. And, because the bat being used was mostly mine, I used to take my bat and run away. I really miss these memories of childhood,” he continued.

Enjoyed the silly fights that used to happen – Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer claimed that he enjoyed the silly fights that used to happen because children don’t know how to play properly.

“I really enjoyed the fights when I played amateur cricket because no one actually knows to play and then they just start cheating and fight against each other. That is definitely one of the memorable moments. At the professional level, I would say reaching the (IPL) finals last year,” Iyer said. 

Iyer has scored 91 runs in three IPL 2021 games in the UAE leg at a strike rate of 116.66 so far as well. He also revealed the most memorable prank he did in the IPL. He chose the mimicking Marcus Stoinis last year was his favourite moment.

“My memorable team prank was last year when we had a team meeting and Ricky (Ponting) knew that I mimic Marcus Stoinis really well. So, he had pre-planned everything. Before he (Stoinis) came into the room I was ready. He came in, he sat and I was just walking like him and we made fun out of him,” the 26-year-old batsman recalled. 

Rishabh Pant also added that he loves smashing cake on the person’s face while celebrating the birthday. He said, “When there is a birthday in the team, I really enjoy smearing cake on the birthday boy and doing naughty stuff. It is real fun.”
