After winning the ODI series in style by 4-1 against New Zealand, the Indians now head to playing the three-game T20I series that starts from tomorrow in Wellington. Ahead of the first T20I, Rishabh Pant along with Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma was rested for the ODIs in Australia and New Zealand joined the squad and sweated it out in the nets. The wicket-keeper batsman was seen playing a bizarre shot which surely reminded us of England’s Eoin Morgan. World Cup Countdown: Time for Pant to Make Strong Case in New Zealand T20s.

The video of the nets session today at Wellington by the BCCI on their social media handles. The Indian cricketing body was also confused about the kind of shot hit by the 21-year-old. “Welcome to the T20 format. What would you call this shot from @RishabPant777 🤔😱  #TeamIndia #NZvIND,” read the caption of the clip. One of the fans shared a video of Eion Morgan playing a similar shot.

Here’s Eoin Morgan’s video.

Here are a few other pictures from the nets.

Talking about Rishabh Pant, he recently played a couple of unofficial ODIs for India A against England Lions in a 5-match series and scored 73 not out in the fourth match which India A won by 6 wickets. Talking about the match tomorrow, Rohit Sharma will be handling the reins of the team in absence of Virat Kohli who has been rested.
