Rishabh Pant, the 18 years old Delhi Daredevils batsman wants to play his natural game in remaining matches in IPL. Pant made his maiden IPL half-century against Gujrat lions in his first match as an opener. “Obviously, it’s a good feeling to contribute something in team’s victory, all the staff members, and captain have confidence in me, faith in me and I just justified their confidence and faith,” Pant said after Daredevils beat Lions by eight wickets yesterday.

While chasing 150, Pant and Quinton de Kock (46) put on 115 runs for the opening wicket in 13.3 overs.”The pitch was good to bat on and I just played my natural game. Zakbhai (Zaheer Khan) had told me that if you get an opportunity to grab it with both the hands, and I just did that,” he said.

“He told me to not think too much about the game and how to play, don’t take the pressure and play your natural game and the main thing is that I just played my natural game. Zakbhai has a different fielding placement in every game because we have a plan for every game and try to execute our plan on the field,” Pant concluded.
