Rishabh Pant Gets Brutally Trolled After IPL Shares his Fitness Test VideoHome > News Shots > Sports news
As Delhi Capitals (DC) is all set to lock horns with Chennai Super Kings today, the Capitals have been struggling to deal with injuries among team members in the ongoing IPL 2020.
Talking about the injuries in the team so far, it was Ravichandran Ashwin, who initially missed a couple of games after his shoulder injury, then came veteran Amit Mishra, who was ruled out of the tournament due to a hand injury.
Currently, Delhi Capitals are concerned over the fitness of star wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant.
He is recovering from a grade 1 tear. Due to his injury, Pant has missed his last two games as he battles against time to make his comeback against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Sharjah today.
Earlier this week, Pant was spotted undergoing a short fitness test ahead of Delhi's clash against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Dubai.
The video of his fitness test was shared on IPL's official handle where Pant can be seen with DC's physio Patrick Farhart.
In the video, Pant can be seen completing a lap while the staff members were captured recording the timing. It was evident that Pant was seemingly slow as he struggled a bit due to his injury.
Soon after the video went viral, Pant was heavily trolled on Twitter as people body-shamed him over his bulky physique.
Pointing over Pant's performance in the team; he has been playing well and also an important member in the Delhi Capitals batting line-up. So far, Pant has played six games for DC in IPL 2020 and has done well with the bat. He has scored 176 runs in six matches at an average of over 36 and a strike rate of over 159.
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane has replaced Pant in the middle-order but is expected to make his comeback soon. Check out the video and trolls below:
