I’m not scared of anyone but Virat Kohli’s anger: Rishabh Pant

Over the last one year, Rishabh Pant has emerged as a great cricketer in the Indian ranks. Not only did he represent India in the longest format but also restored the faith by the management, scoring centuries in England and Australia. Even in the IPL, the wicketkeeper-batsman piled up 684 runs last season and ended up as the second highest run scorer after Kane Williamson.
However, the 21-year-old has failed to make a statement in the limited-overs format in the Indian lineup. His wicketkeeping has also not been upto the mark. As he yearns to learn and fill the big shoes of MS Dhoni in the future, the youngster has a lot of hardwork to do. Pant also inspires much confidence from his skipper Virat Kohli.
You only learn from your mistakes
The Indian captain has often displayed his emotions on the field and likes to be really aggressive. In a video posted by Delhi Capitals, Pant stated that if there was something he was scared of, it was Kohli’s anger. However, at the same time, he mentioned that it was for his own good so that he doesn’t repeat those mistakes again.
“I am not scared of anyone but I’m scared of Virat Kohli‘s anger. If you are doing everything correctly, then why he should get angry. But if you make a mistake and someone gets angry with you, it’s good because you only learn from your mistakes,” Rishabh Pant remarked in a video posted by the Delhi Capitals.
After ending up at the bottom of the points table, Delhi Capitals will be looking forward to making amends this season. The franchise boasts of a great Indian batting core with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Shreyas Iyer also in the mix. Pant knows that a good performance in the initial stages would be crucial not only for Delhi but also help him book his spot in the World Cup squad.
