Kudos to wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant who did not have any contract last year, and who has directly been given a Grade 'A' contract with Rs 5 crore annual income. BCCI has handed a Grade 'A' contract to 11 players this time, four more than the previous year. In Saha's absence Pant has grabbed the opportunity and has proven himself to be a worthy successor to MS Dhoni behind the stumps. In his first Test series, he scored a ton in England, and then followed it up with another ton in Australia.

The 21-year-old was the second highest run-scorer in the 4-match Test series Down Under, scoring 350 runs in 7 innings at an average of 58.33. He is expected to be Dhoni's understudy at the upcoming World Cup. I wish, he will prove himself more beneficial than he has been expected in the upcoming World Cup. Good wishes for his bright future.

Muhammad Zaid, Ramanagara
