(Watch) Rishabh Pant spends time with Virat Kohli in Bengaluru

Star batsman Virat Kohli engaged in a conversation with Rishabh Pant on the eve of the third T20I clash between India and Afghanistan, set to take place on Wednesday, January 17, at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

A video capturing the interaction surfaced on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), revealing the camaraderie between the two players during the pre-match practice session. Kohli, who recently made a triumphant return to India’s T20I squad after a year-long hiatus since the 2022 T20I World Cup, showcased his form by scoring an impressive 29 runs off 16 balls in the second match against Afghanistan.

On the other hand, Pant is currently not part of the Indian squad for the ongoing T20I series against Afghanistan. The 26-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman, still recovering from a life-threatening accident in December 2023, has been diligently working on regaining full fitness at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

Despite Pant’s absence from the current T20I series, the anticipation surrounding his return to competitive cricket continues to build. The Delhi Capitals wait for the return of their regular captain in the upcoming Indian Premier League edition.
