Pant reveals he seeks advice from Kohli, Rohit among other India teammates

In his 21 Tests so far, the India wicketkeeper has gone on to score 1,403 runs at 43.84

India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant says he turns to four people, namely, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin and head coach Ravi Shastri for advice within the team. Pant, who recently recovered from Covid-19, will play his second series in England, having made his Test debut there three years ago. 

Since then, Pant has established himself as an integral member of the Indian side. He has gone on to win them matches in Australia and also at home against England, where he scored a vital century against them in Chennai. 

Talking about his journey so fat, Pant told BCCI.tv, "All the seniors and coaching staff, like, I talk to Rohit bhai a lot. Talking about the game, previous matches, what we could have done, what we could not have done. In the future, if a similar situation happens, what are the possible outcomes, what more can we add). Virat bhaiya is there to help me out with the technical stuff, especially about playing in England, standing a bit forward or back."

"Ravi bhai (Shastri) is also there, I speak to him a lot because he has played enough cricket all over the world, he has the idea." 

"Ash bhai (Ashwin), he always has an idea about what the batsman could do. So, when he bowls, as a batsman I can ask him what he's thinking. So, as a player, I just want to learn from each and every person," he added.

In his 21 Tests so far, Pant has gone on to score 1,403 runs at 43.84, which includes three tons and six fifties. He will be in action once again in the five-match Test series against England, starting August 4 at Trent Bridge.
