The boy who dreamed big
Born in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, little Rishabh would travel with his mother to Delhi during the weekends for cricket training. He represented Rajasthan in U-13 and U-15 cricket before returning to Delhi. Rishabh then made a name for himself with his fearless batting in first-class cricket and international cricket.
Off The Field
Just 22, Rishabh is already a sensation on social media. His sense of humour was appreciated by all when he visited Tim Paine’s household and struck a pose with Paine’s wife while holding their baby. The move was inspired by Australia captain’s on-field banter. The Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman also shares pictures with his girlfriend, Isha Negi, on social media.
