Rishabh Pant is having a magnificent time in 2016/17. He blasted the fastest century in the history of the Ranji Trophy off just 48 balls against Jharkhand. He has already amassed over 900 runs at an average of 90.30 with four centuries.

  • Rishabh Pant scored the fastest century in Ranji Trophy history off 48 balls
  • Rishabh Pant became the third youngest Indian player to score a triple ton in first-class cricket
  • Rishabh Pant plays for Delhi Daredevils in IPL

Now, the dashing Delhi wicket-keeper batsman has signed a three-year multi-crore deal with cricket equipment manufacturers, Sanspareils Greenland (SG). In a statement issued by PMG, Pant will be seen endorsing SG cricket equipment across all formats of the game.

Rishabh Pant also became only the second Delhi batsman and the third youngest Indian in Ranji Trophy history to score a triple hundred, having smashed 308 against Maharashtra. These performances will surely catch the attention of the selectors.

Pant has a chance to go past 1,000 runs in a season in Delhi’s final league game against Saurashtra in Vadodara. Delhi, who are currently in fourth spot in Group B, have to win if they have to seal their spot in the quarter-finals of the Ranji Trophy.
