Rishabh Pant’s improvement as a wicketkeeper has been remarkable, just like Dhoni- Sanjay Manjrekar

Pant has time and again called MS Dhoni his idol. Recently, Commentator Sanjay Manjrekar had also compared Rishabh Pant’s growth as a wicketkeeper to that of Dhoni. While speaking on Sony Sports, he said: “He [Pant] has taken the job [wicketkeeping] very seriously, and his improvement has been remarkable, just like Dhoni. How he sort of improved as a keeper. I loved his commitment because you can take this job a little easy while being so successful as a batter. It’s strikingly brilliant.”

Meanwhile, ahead of his birthday, MS Dhoni was spotted watching the Wimbledon Quarter-Final between Rafael Nadal and Taylor Fritz.
