India vs England: Rishabh Pant Gets Maiden Test Call-up, Danielle Wyatt Congratulates Him

Rishabh Pant gets a maiden Test call-up for the first three Tests against England and English women cricketer Danielle Wyatt has congratulated the youngster.

Wyatt took to Twitter to congratulate the wicketkeeper-batsman. Her tweet was short and crisp, it read, “Congrats Pantyyyy! well deserved”.

Pant spotted the post and Wyatt’s reply and he thanked both of them for their warm wishes. He wrote, “Thanku”.

Haridwar-born Pant has got a maiden Test call-up after impressing selectors with his IPL performance, where he scored 681 runs from 14 games at an average of 52.61 and a staggering strike rate of 173.60. It included a century and five fifties. Currently, Pant is in the UK and is representing India A. He recently hit a crucial 64* against England Lions. The 20-year-old followed it up with a gutsy knock of 67 runs in 71 balls to guide India A to a victory against the Windies.

Earlier, the youngster was included in the T20I squad for the Nidahas Trophy where he played two matches and was dropped after a couple of lacklustre performances.

Here is the Indian squad for the first three Tests against England. Mohammed Shami has been included and Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been dropped following a stiff back.
