Team India’s star wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has started the England tour with a bang. Rishabh Pant made an aggressive 76 off 87 balls in the warm-up match against Leicestershire in England. With this, Rishabh Pant has shown that he is not struggling with poor form. Rishabh Pant also eliminated the questions raised during the South Africa series with this innings.
Four Indian players are playing for the home team for match practice, including Pant. He spent 154 minutes at the crease and hit 14 fours and a six. India declared yesterday’s score at 246 runs for eight wickets. Leicestershire’s team had lost six wickets for 138 runs but Pant took some brilliant shots to take the team’s score beyond 200.
Shreyas Iyer sent this wicket-keeper batsman to the pavilion by taking a brilliant catch off the ball of left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja. Leicestershire’s first innings ended on 244, two less than India’s total.

Mohammed Shami took three wickets for India, in which veteran Indian player Cheteshwar Pujara was bowled without opening the account. Apart from Shami, Jadeja also took three wickets. Shardul Thakur and Mohammad Siraj took two wickets each.
Rishi Patel and Roman Walker scored 34-34 for Leicestershire. India then scored 80 for one wicket in the second innings. Sreekar Bharat 31 and Shubman Gill (38) shared a 62-run partnership for the first wicket. At the time of stumps, Hanuma Vihari was present on the crease with Bharat after scoring nine runs.
However, India’s star batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli could not play a big innings in the practice match, which is a matter of concern for Team India.
