Indian wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant shared some pictures from his U-19 days on Instagram earlier today. Before becoming the superstar that he is presently, Pant played for the country in the ICC U-19 World Cup 2016.
Ishan Kishan, another member of the current Indian squad, captained India U-19s in the ICC U-19 World Cup 2016.
Rishabh Pant posted a bunch of photos on Instagram earlier today and captioned it as follows:
"Life will move on, but these u-19 memories will remain forever. One of the best time."
The India U-19 cricket team finished runners-up in the 2016 U-19 World Cup. They lost to the West Indies U-19s in the summit clash. Shimron Hetmyer was the captain of that West Indies U-19 squad.
Interestingly, Hetmyer played under Rishabh Pant's captaincy for the Delhi Capitals team during IPL 2021.
