Indian Cricketers Suresh Raina & Rishabh Pant have started their training together amid the coronavirus pandemic after staying away from the field for months due to the coronavirus enforced lockdown.
Talking about his fellow left-handed batsman Raina was full of praise & said that he hopes that Pant would live up to his potential & make his fans proud. Raina called Rishabh a “top guy” & praised the wicket-keeper for scoring runs in the domestic cricket as well as for the national team.
Suresh Raina’s IPL team, CSK took to Instagram to share the snippets of his & Pant’s net sessions. “He’s amazing. He’s a top guy and I want him to be who he is. He has been performing, scoring a lot of runs for Delhi and of course for the Indian team,” Raina told presenter Rupha Ramani in the video shared by CSK while talking about Pant. “I just want him to be the best batsman for his caliber and I hope he will make you all proud,” Raina added.
Rishabh credited Raina for guiding him & spoke about the special bond he shares with Raina.
“It’s been a good experience because with him you can learn a lot of things,” Pant said on training with Raina. “Especially with a leftie batsman, you’ve got that brotherhood together,” he added. “He teaches me a lot of things, on and off-the-field experiences, like how I can approach a situation. We discuss a lot of things and it is helping me right now,” the wicketkeeper-batsman said.
On asking Rishabh about his interaction with Dhoni Pant said that his interactions with the former captain were always short but very meaningful. “With Mahi bhai the interaction is always a little bit, but very intense. So, we keep it that way that whenever we talk, we talk intense, because the lengthy sessions don’t make me feel right, so I just like to talk about small things, grab it and then move on to other things,” Pant said.
