The comment section of the post soon got filled in a jiffy as fans praised Pant for rising through the ranks.
Earlier, a similar picture of young Virat Kohli with Nehra also went viral on social media, grabbing a lot of
attention from the cricketing experts and fans.
Well, it will be interesting to see if Pant reaches the level of the Indian captain or not.
Currently, Pant has been seen practising with Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) vice-captain Suresh Raina and looked in great touch ahead of the marque tournament.
