Indian wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant is set to play a Test series against England. India will play the first match of the five-match Test series on August 4. Pant is happy to have seen ups and downs in his short international career, which helped him grow as a player as he learned from his mistakes. Pant, who recently recovered from Kovid-19, is set to play his 22nd Test match for India on the same ground (Trentbridge), where he made his first impression in Test matches by hitting a long six in 2018.
Pant told ‘BCCI.TV’ on Saturday, ‘It’s been an amazing journey since I saw so many ups and downs early in my career. You grow as a cricketer, learn from your mistakes, improve yourself and come back and perform well. I am glad I learned from my mistakes and took advantage of any opportunity I got after that. I’m happy. ‘ “I try to learn from all the top cricketers to be a better player,” Pant said.
He said, ‘I talk a lot with Rohit Bhai, about the game, what we did in the last game and what we can do in the next match. What can I add to my game? I also get technical knowledge by Virat Bhai. Especially about the back and forth game of the wicket while England are playing. He wants to learn from all of them to become a better player.

I talk to Ravi Bhai (Shastri) a lot because he has played a lot of cricket all over the world. When bowling Ash Bhai (Ashwin), he knows what the batsman’s intentions are. So as a batsman I can talk about what I think with the bowler. As a player, I want to learn from everyone.
