Rishabh Pant is considered to be the next big finisher after MS Dhoni but the young cricketer is still in the nascent stages of his careers. Pant has been idolising MS Dhoni and has revealed he has learnt a lot while watching him bat and sharing the crease with the senior wicketkeeper-batsman.
“Whenever I needed any support from Mahi bhai, I used to ask him. From my IPL contract to my wicket-keeping, he’s advised me on everything,” Rishabh Pant had said in the past.
Meanwhile the official twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings shared a video of Rishabh Pant and Dhoni during the post match of Qualifier-2. The video shows Dhoni giving some tips on improving the game.
