During the T20 World Cup 2024 match between India and Pakistan, Rishabh Pant stood out as the lone warrior in an otherwise dismal batting display by India. Returning to the pitch after a lengthy recovery from a severe car accident, Pant showcased his resilience and skill, scoring a valiant 42 off 31 balls. His innings included some remarkable strokes, providing a glimmer of hope in an otherwise faltering lineup.

Rishabh Pant is only bright spot in India's lineup

As Rishabh Pant held his ground, the rest of the Indian batting order crumbled around him, unable to withstand the ferocious bowling attack from Pakistan. Pacers Naseem Shah, Mohammad Amir, and Haris Rauf exploited the pitch conditions expertly, leaving India reeling at 119 all out. Despite the rain interruptions, Pakistan's bowlers maintained their dominance, with Shah taking 3/21, Amir 2/23, and Rauf 3/21, applying relentless pressure on the Indian batsmen.
