Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has returned to training after fully recovering from COVID-19 ahead of the five-match Test series against England. The much-anticipated bilateral series gets underway on August 4 (Wednesday) in Nottingham.
Rishabh, a kid from Delhi, was seen in a recent Instagram video undergoing intense muscle training. Rishabh Pant appeared to be in excellent shape while working out at the gym.
Meanwhile, on July 8, Rishabh Pant tested positive for COVID-19 and moved in with a relative. He did not accompany the team to Durham and was unable to participate in the three-day warm-up game versus Select County XI. Later, he joined the squad and has begun training.
Pant received a grand welcome on joining the squad from his teammates and head coach Ravi Shastri. Posting a few photos on Twitter, Pant said:
“Thrilled to be back. Thank you @RaviShastriOfc for this grand welcome”.
In the meanwhile, Pant will be critical if India is to defeat England in their own backyard. Former England captain Nasser Hussain, on the other hand, believes that the 23-year-position old’s at no. 6 is not ideal in English conditions.
