Team India is set to compete against Afghanistan in the Super-8 match on June 20 in Barbados. On Wednesday, the Indian team practiced for the match, focusing on run-out drills. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were seen practicing sweep shots. However, one key player, star batsman Rishabh Pant, was notably absent from the session.

Rishabh Pant Misses Team India Practice Session

Star Sports released a video of the practice, noting that the session was similar to the one held on Monday, with the only difference being Pant’s absence.

Since it was an optional training session, Pant might have opted to rest. Nevertheless, his absence has caused concern among fans, who are worried and speculating that Pant might be injured.

Rishabh Pant is currently India’s top run-scorer in the ongoing T20 World Cup. While no other Indian batsman has even reached the 70-run mark yet, Pant has amassed 96 runs in 3 games while batting at number three.

After hitting a half-century in the warm-up match against Bangladesh, the Delhi star scored an unbeaten 36 against Ireland in India’s first tournament game. He then played a crucial 42-run innings in the narrow 6-run victory over Pakistan before being dismissed for 18 against the USA.
