Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is having the time of his life since the second Test in Australia in December 2020. While he has been entertaining Indian fans on the field, he has now found new ways to entertain himself during nets sessions with a friend he calls 'Spidey'.
Pant was seen controlling a drone as the rest of the Indian team members sweated it out in the nets ahead of the third Test against England, starting from Wednesday, February 24. He was seen flying the drone on top of the nets and enjoying his time out there.
He posted a reel on his Instagram handle with the caption, "I've spent a lot of time behind the stumps, thought of taking in a new view at the nets today! Meet my new friend, I call him spidey #drone #tech #RP17 #17"
Pant was seen in his batting gear as KL Rahul was packing his kit bag beside him. The 23-year-old will most likely be in Team India's playing XI for the day/night Test at the picturesque Motera stadium.
Rahul has not been in the fray for a spot in the Test matches in the recent past but might get a chance if India gains an unassailable lead in the four-match series after the third game.
The third Test will be the first international match at the newly-constructed Motera, which has now become the largest cricket stadium in the world.
