Rishabh Pant is currently with the Indian team in England. He along with the other members of the Indian team is gearing up for the third Test starting at Headingley from August 25. Team India are leading the side 1-0 after their historic win at Lord’s. Pant scored 37 and 22 in the two innings. Both knocks were crucial given the time when he walked out to bat.
Meanwhile, in between the second and the third Test match, Rishabh Pant was having a gala time. He was active on social media especially on Instagram posting pictures with his Indian teammates. In his most recent post, he posted a picture calling himself “the most well-behaved boy in class”.
“Class ka sabse shareef ladka (The most well-behaved guy in the class),” Pant captioned the post in Hindi.

While his fans were impressed by the post, his Indian teammates Axar Patel and Ishant Sharma saw the funny side of it. Reacting to Pant’s post, Axar Patel wrote “wo hai jo photo le raha tha” which translates to ‘the one who clicked the pictures, is the well-mannered one.’
Ishant Sharma also took a sly dig at him and questioned Axar for calling himself innocent. Meanwhile, the Indian team reached Leeds on Saturday and have been gearing up for the third Test. Indian playing XI might see a few changes with the possibility of R Ashwin, Suryakumar Yadav playing. Shardul Thakur has also recovered from his hamstring injury and is available for selection.
