IPL 2022: Will always love and miss you until we meet again- Rishabh Pant posts emotional letter for his father



Delhi Capitals captain and India wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant paid an emotional tribute to his late father Rajendra Pant in an Instagram post on Sunday. His coach Tarak Sinha, who passed away in 2021 after battling lung cancer, and his father, whom he lost in 2017, played an instrumental role in the journey of the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman.

The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) marks five years since Rishabh Pant lost his father as he passed away in his sleep, back home in Roorkee. The skipper went back home to his family when he got the news, and then returned to the franchise, to get on with the tournament.

This is what he posted on his Instagram page

“He loved me for who I was and accepted me for who I was striving to become. Dads are strong for a reason. Their strength gives us a sense of protection. Now that you are in heaven dad, I know you will continue to protect me. Thanks for being my dad. I will always love and miss you until we meet again.”

Ahead of the IPL 2022, Rishabh Pant said that his coach Tarak Sinha was his second father, saying that his father and his coach are the reason for his success today,

“I wanted to come back and meet him (chokes). I really miss my father. When my father left me, I was playing cricket. Tarak sir was like my second father. When he left us, I was again busy playing. These people have taken me where I stand today. “

Pant said that he tried his best to provide all the support he could to his coach, Tarak Sinha.

“I tried my best to provide all the support he (Tarak sir) needed from there. He told me, ‘Doesn’t matter what happens in life, you have to keep playing cricket. You need to take care of your family and that’s what I have tried,” he said.

24-year-old Rishabh Pant shared that he had a small circle, and that no one could replace his father and his coach.

“No one can fill the void created by my father and Tarak sir. But you have to have people around you. I share my problems with my mother sometimes. Devendra Sharma (Sinha’s student and colleague at Sonnet Club) is there. I have a really small circle. Everyone has his own place. Friends and family have their own separate places in my life,” he said.
