Salman Butt, a former captain of the Pakistan National Cricket Team, has made a significant statement regarding Rishabh Pant’s fitness, asserting that the wicketkeeper-batter for the India National Cricket Team is overweight.

At the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, Rishabh Pant is currently playing in the first Test of a two-match Test series against the Bangladesh National Cricket Team.

The 25-year-old wicketkeeper-batter hit a thunderous 46 runs off 45 balls in India’s first innings. Additionally, he and Cheteshwar Pujara produced a solid 64-run stand in 73 balls that helped India recover after being reduced to 48/3.

Salman Butt discussed Pant’s batting performance against Bangladesh in a video posted on his own YouTube channel, noting that the wicketkeeper-batter made an effort to play creative strokes throughout the innings. He believed that if Pant had been fit, playing creative shots would have been simpler for him.

“Rishabh Pant was playing the way he likes to, but he went for something innovative and got out. It was a weird dismissal as the ball hit the bat, pad before rattling the stumps. I always speak on Rishabh Pant’s fitness because the kind of shots he plays and tries to innovate, it would be easier for him execute those shots if he was fit. I think he is overweight,” he said.

Butt said that Pant is clearly overweight, which makes him a less agile cricket player. The 38-year-old continued by saying that Rishabh Pant’s fitness was subpar.

“Definitely, he is overweight and because of that, he is not very agile. He is under the level where he should be, in terms of fitness,” Butt said in a video uploaded on his YouTube channel.

Speaking about the game, India scored 404 runs in their first innings thanks to strong half-centuries from Cheteshwar Pujara, Shreyas Iyer, and Ravichandran Ashwin. Additionally, Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant had 40-plus contributions.
