India wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant has been dearly missed by the team in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. His replacement, KS Bharat has been short on runs and has been found wanting while keeping to the ball bowled down the leg side. Even though the team won the first two Tests, they might be missing Pant a lot more in the ongoing Indore Test.
Apparently, Nathan Lyon took an eight-wicket haul in the ongoing third Test. This meant that the home team was bowled out for 163 runs. Now, the Aussies need only 75 runs to win the game. While the veteran off-spinner was doing his job, the fans remembered Pant, who they think might have dominated against Lyon.
I even found happiness while brushing my teeth: Rishabh Pant
On the other hand, the wicketkeeper batter spoke about his recovery process recently.
As quoted by ESPNcricinfo, he said “It is hard for me to say if everything around me has become more positive or even negative. However, I’ve gained a fresh perspective on how I view my life now. Something I value today is enjoying my life to the fullest and this includes the smallest of things that we ignore in our daily routine. Everyone today is hustling and working extremely hard to achieve something special, but we’ve forgotten to enjoy the little things which give us joy every single day.
“Especially after my accident, I’ve found happiness in even being able to brush my teeth every day as well as something like sitting under the sun. While trying to achieve our goals, it seems like we’ve taken the regular things in life for granted. My biggest realisation and message would be that feeling blessed every day is also a blessing, and that’s the mindset I’ve adopted since my setback and being able to enjoy every moment which comes my way is a takeaway I have for myself.”
