Currently recovering from severe injuries resulting from a tragic car accident last year, Pant shared an Instagram story showcasing his engagement with the match.
The story included a crossed-fingers and heart emoji as a caption, indicating his support and hope for the Indian team.
Pant emerged as a standout performer for India throughout the WTC 2021-23 cycle, playing a crucial role in his team’s victories. Over the course of 12 matches, he amassed an impressive total of 868 runs at an average of 43.40.
He showcased his ability to convert starts into big scores by recording two centuries and five half-centuries, with his highest individual score reaching an impressive 146. His contributions with the bat were instrumental in bolstering India’s success during the championship.
In 24 WTC matches, including those which took place in the 2019-21 cycle, Pant scored 1,575 runs in 41 innings at an average of 41.44. He has scored three centuries and nine fifties, with a best score of 146.
Unfortunately, his WTC run was cut short due to the car accident last year in December.
