Rishabh Pant, after finishing the Border-Gavaskar series as Team India’s top scorer, has become a fan favorite for the upcoming ICC Player of the Month Award. Along with three other Indians, Pant was one of 10 players nominated for the award, which was launched on Wednesday by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
But it looks like Pant’s 97 and 89 * won more fans than Joe Root’s 426 runs in England’s two test matches against Sri Lanka. According to DNA Poll on which of the Indian players is most likely to receive the honor, Panting was the winner and by a certain margin.
Pant received 56% of the public’s vote while the second best was Mohammed Siraj with 17% of the vote, almost a quarter of what Pant got. In five innings, Pant amassed 274 points, becoming the Indian team’s top scorer in terms of total points, while Cheteshwar Pujara was second with just 3 points.
