Veteran Australian spinner said Indian wicket-keeper Rishabh pant can be a superstar over the next decade looking at his current phenomenal form.
After getting dropped from the limited over side Rishabh Pant has done a tremendous job by doing a marvelous comeback in the team. Since joining the Test side in the 2nd match in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy he has been in sensational form.

The 23-year-old has played many remarkable knocks which helped the team win the matches. His impactful knock in Australia and home series against England were amazing, he even scored a century against England.
Veteran Australian spinner Brad Hogg is excited to see Rishabh’s Pant bat against the duke balls in England against the fierce Kiwi pace battery.
This is going to be a very interesting couple of months for Rishabh Pant over in English conditions with the Duke’s ball moving. I am interested to see how his game plan changes. If it does, is he going to continue playing his attacking game, or is he going to be a bit more defensive? I hope he goes after the bowling because if he does then it will be a good counteract to swing bowling. He is going to be a superstar over the next ten years,” said Brad Hogg while speaking on his official YouTube Channel.
Rishabh Pant enjoyed a dream run against Australia and England
Young Rishabh Pant is one of the reasons behind India retaining the Border Gavaskar trophy even after being all odds stacked against them in Australia. Rishabh was given the responsibility to keep the wicket after Virat Kohli opting out of the team and Wriddhiman Saha underperforming and Pant grabbed that opportunity and did a fantastic job.
His unbeaten 89 runs which included a match-winning boundary at Gabba and 97 runs knock at Sydney Cricket Ground were two of the most important knocks in that series
Rishabh’s century and two half-century knock against England at home helped the team to make it into the WTC final to face New Zealand at Ageas Bowl Southhampton.
