Seen as the next big thing in Indian cricket, Pant has been turning heads with his performances in the domestic circuit. The 19-year old grabbed the attention when he scored a belligerent 308 off 326 balls against Maharashtra in Ranji Trophy last year. He followed it up with a 48-ball hundred against Jharkhand, one of the fastest first-class centuries by an Indian. He finished Ranji Trophy as its fourth-highest run-getter with 972 runs in only 8 outings including four centuries and a couple of fifties.
He recently made his T20I debut against England and his performances in the ongoing Indian Premier League is also decent.
