Rishab Pant Plays An Exemplary Game Even After Father’s Death And Twitter Is Full Of Praise

Rishab Pant is nothing short of an icon. On Saturday, the youngster played one of the most brilliant cricketing innings I had ever witnessed. While the Delhi Daredevils still ended up losing the match, Rishab won the hearts of millions. The cricketer’s father died in his sleep earlier during the week. He rushed to his hometown to perform the last rites and within two days, got back on the field and delivered a spectacular performance.
