[WATCH] Rishabh Pant Plays Golf With Suryakumar Yadav In The Hotel Corridor

India’s wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant and the stylish batter Suryakumar Yadav share a strong camaraderie, recently displayed as they played golf in the corridor of their team hotel in New York. During this light-hearted moment, Pant was thrilled after making a perfect golf shot into the hole on his first attempt.

This fun interaction came just a day after both players performed impressively in the T20 World Cup warm-up match against Bangladesh at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium.

In the warm-up game, Pant was in excellent form, scoring an unbeaten 53 off 32 balls, which included four sixes and four boundaries. This performance was particularly notable as it was Pant’s first game for India after recovering from injuries sustained in a car accident in 2022.

His return to form showcased his exceptional shot-making abilities. Suryakumar Yadav also made a significant contribution, scoring 31 runs off 18 balls, with four boundaries. Their efforts helped India secure a 60-run victory.

Both Pant and Suryakumar had already shown impressive form in the IPL 2024 season. Pant scored 446 runs in 13 matches, while Suryakumar amassed 345 runs in 11 matches. Their performances in the IPL indicate that they are key players for India as they head into the main matches of the ICC event.

Sunil Gavaskar lauds Rishabh Pant and ranks him top pick for wicketkeeper

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has endorsed Rishabh Pant as his preferred wicketkeeper for the 2024 T20 World Cup, ranking him ahead of Sanju Samson. Gavaskar’s choice was influenced by Samson’s poor performance in the warm-up game against Bangladesh, where he managed to score only one run off six balls despite being promoted to the opening position.

Gavaskar said: “Yes, I think simply because if you compare the wicketkeeping abilities then Rishabh Pant is a better wicketkeeper than Samson. We’re not talking about batting here, the batting aspect also comes into play. But, Rishabh Pant in the last few matches has batted really well.”

“On the other hand, Sanju Samson started the IPL season superbly, scored runs at will, hitting the ball to all corners of the ground. In the last two-three matches, he didn’t quite get runs. So this was an opportunity for him actually the match against Bangladesh. If he had scored about 50-60 then there would have been no question but I do feel that the Indian selection committee will look at having Pant as the keeper.”

Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav not only enjoy a great personal relationship but also consistently contribute to the team’s success with their outstanding performances. Pant’s quick recovery and return to form, coupled with Suryakumar’s consistent batting, make them crucial players for India as they prepare for the upcoming crucial matches in the ICC event.

Their recent activities and performances have been promising, setting high expectations for their roles in the national team.
