'Careless, or Carefree,' it's upto the fans and the experts to decide, Pant will play the way he likes and that is exactly what makes him different from the rest.
Born on October 4, 1997, Rishabh Pant turns 24. The skipper of the Delhi Capitals has established himself in the Indian side. Over the years, the left hander has played a few swashbuckling innings in the longest format of the game which has guided India to memorable victories.
Flamboyant and aggressive on the field, Pant is a true family man off the field. The young gun has posted several pictures on his Instagram handle with his family.

Many a times, the two stayed at a Gurudwara near the college on weekends. Undoubtedly, Pant's mother had played a huge role in his success.
