“Rishabh Pant was playing the way he likes, but he looked for something innovative and came out. It was a strange dismissal as the ball hit the bat, the pad before cracking the stumps. I always talk about Rishabh Pant’s fitness because the type of shots he plays and tries to innovate, it would be easier for him to hit those shots if he was fit. I think he is overweight,” he said.

He is definitely overweight and therefore not very agile – Salman Butt
