Having made his international debut in 2017, Pant has gone on to cement his place in the Indian team across all three formats with some scintillating performances with the bat, led by his famous knock to win the Gabba Test on India’s tour of Australia in 2020.
Teammates and fans lined up on social media on Tuesday to wish Pant a Happy Birthday.
Virat Kohli posted a story on his Instagram account to send Pant his wishes. Kohli and Pant both hail from Delhi.
“Happy Birthday Rishabh Pant. Have a good one. God bless,” Kohli’s Instagram story read.
Pant, who has been included in India’s squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia, has so far featured in 31 Tests, 27 ODIs and 61 T20Is, having scored 2123, 840 and 934 runs respectively.
He has scored six international tons in his short career so far, five of which have come in Tests and one in the 50-over format. He has also scored 10 half-centuries in Tests, five in ODIs and three in T20Is.
Former and current cricketers, besides fans, joined Kohli in sending Pant their best wishes.
