Though the 12th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is about a month away, the first look of the much-awaited T20 campaign is out.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who had an exceptional IPL last year and has been a consistent part of the Indian cricket team through the 2018-19 season, is seen taking a playful jibe at his senior, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
“Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) is like a guru.
“Who knows whether I’d be a wicketkeeper-batsman if Mahi bhai wasn’t there.”
That’s the meek beginning of an otherwise feisty video featuring Pant, sending a message out to ‘Captain Cool’.
“Iss baari main unki team pe aise barsoonga, ki captain cool, cool nahi rahenge,” (This time I’m going to come down so heavily on his team, that captain cool will no longer be cool), a cheeky Pant goes on to say in the TV commercial.
