After Virat Kohli’s insistence on fitness, the young generation of Indian cricketers have taken it as their prime regime over skillset, and Rishabh Pant is a brilliant example of it.
The 21-year-old on Friday pulled off WWE star Shawn Michaels’ trademark “kick up move” to flaunt his incredible fitness.
On Day 2 of the Sydney Test, during the drinks break in the second session, Pant was lying down on the ground with his pads on, but suddenly he performed an acrobatic move leaving everyone in awe.

Pant, who scored a magnificent 159 not-out amassed fifteen fours and a six during his scintillating knock. Thereby, he became the first Asian wicket-keeper batsman to score a Test century against Australia in their own backyard.
