India enjoys a huge support be it England, Australia or New Zealand as the players get asked with requests for pictures and autographs.

The story as it happened –
24-year-old Rishabh Pant is the life of the party on the field of play, be it with the bat or behind the stumps. Pant came back to form with the bat, when he played an amazing knock of 76. The moment of the day came when the announcer at the ground said, that the Indian team would not sign any autographs or pose for selfies. There were a swarm of kids who were sitting by the boundary line and that’s when Pant made his entry.
Rishabh Pant comes up with a sweet gesture for the fans-
There was a massive applause as the fans spotted Pant by the boundary line with a slew of kids getting ready for some pictures. The Indian wicket keeper was seen singing a few autographs for the fans and later posed for a picture with a group of kids who were sitting down on the ground. Pant was seen smiling through the course of the entire 18 second video which was posted on Twitter by a user named Nakul Pande. The user had written the clear directives from the announcer at the ground.
Pant shows his class with the bat –
Rishabh Pant just a few weeks ago was the Indian captain during the T20 series against South Africa. The 24-year-old had scored just 57 runs during the series and there were serious concerns about his form. Pant though showed his class with the bat with a 87 ball 76 run knock with 14 fours and a six. The six in particular was a classic one as he played a scoop flick off Umesh Yadav to reach his 50.
