Pant became the brand ambassador of Uttarakhand state
Pant, 24, hails from Uttarakhand and has recently been made the brand ambassador of the state. After this, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami tweeted to congratulate him. In this, he wrote – Hearty congratulations on becoming the fastest Indian wicket-keeper to take 100 wickets in the Test match being played in South Africa by Rishabh Pant, the son of Uttarakhand and the brand ambassador of the state.
Chief Minister’s tweet viral on social media
Everything else is written correctly in this tweet of the Chief Minister, but he has congratulated Pant for taking 100 wickets, while Pant is not a bowler but a wicketkeeper. After this tweet, the fans replied and wrote that Pant is not a bowler but a wicketkeeper. They don’t even know that much. Hunting behind the wicket means stumping, catching out, and running out. Cricket fans made this tweet viral on social media.
