Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said goodbye to international cricket on August 15, 2020. It is difficult to find a wicketkeeper and batsman like Dhoni, but Rishabh Pant seems to be filling Dhoni's lack to some extent.
Pant is in the early stages of his career and he is also compared to Dhoni, he hits big shots like Dhoni. Although Pant does not like comparisons with Dhoni, Dhoni is like a god to Pant, this has been revealed by Kolkata Knight Riders opener and Nitish Rana selected in Team India for the Sri Lanka tour.
Nitish Rana said in an interview, 'Pant does not consider himself to be comparable to Dhoni. He likes Dhoni very much, Dhoni is like a god to him.' According to Nitish Rana, Pant had said that he should not be compared with Dhoni. You take my bat and everything, I don't want to play...but don't compare me to him.'
