Watch how Rishabh Pant is spending quarantine break at home
Rishabh Pant is an Indian wicketkeeper-batsman who is the current stand-in skipper for Delhi Capitals in the now-suspended 2021 Indian Premier League. He is currently quarantining at home following the COVID bubble breach that led to IPL 2021's suspension.
Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is steadily rising the ranks in Indian cricket, along with some formidable performances in the international circuit. Owing to his consistency of late, he was rewarded with the Delhi Capitals captaincy for Indian Premier League 2021, filling in for injured skipper Shreyas Iyer.
Meanwhile, IPL 2021 has been postponed owing to multiple COVID bubble breaches, with DC's veteran spinner Amit Mishra testing positive. Consequently, the entire DC squad has been in isolation, while Pant has been quarantining at his home.
Recently, he shared a video of how he is utilising his quarantine break, as he was seen mowing his lawn. He captioned the video, "Ye Dil Mange "Mower"! Forced quarantine break, but happy to be able to stay active while indoors. Please stay safe, everyone."
The current severe COVID situation of the country has seen struggles on the medical front, with a lack of proper amenities and oxygen leading to difficulties in treating the patients. On the same note, Pant decided to donate some monetary amount to Hemkunt Foundation to support the nation in terms of producing enough oxygen.
"I am supporting the Hemkunt Foundation through a monetary donation that will help provide o2 cylinders with beds, Covid-relief kits and much more to those suffering across the country. I am especially keen to work with organisations providing medical aid and support to rural India and non-metro cities, which do not have the capacity of medical infrastructure than that of the major cities," he wrote on Twitter.
"I urge everyone to contribute in their own way so that we can help reach the remotest parts of the country and spread awareness about COVID relief and vaccination programs being run by the central and state governments," he concluded.
