Career in Cricket
Since he was little, Rishabh Pant has enjoyed playing cricket a lot. When he was just 12 years old, he began taking cricket lessons. Every weekend, he and his mother would make the trip to Delhi to train at the Sonnet Cricket Academy, where Tarak Sinha served as the head coach. He and his mother used to reside at a Gurdwara in Moti Bagh because they lacked a suitable home of their own in Delhi.
Pant’s coach urged him to represent Rajasthan in cricket at the Under-13 and Under-15 levels, but for some reason this was not possible. After that, his coach gave him some advice on how to develop into a great batsman in the future. He was given the opportunity to play for the Delhi under-19 squad against Assam due to his improved performance, and he seized it by impressing everyone with his batting by scoring 35 runs in the first innings and 150 runs in the second.
