Darren Gough has praised Rishabh Pant after his superb performance in the England series saying he is one of those players who can play his strokes in all areas of the ground. Gough further stated that Pant is finding his best position where he can help the Indian team in winning the matches.

India's tour to England was a very good outing for them as they won the white-ball series after suffering a defeat in the rescheduled Test. The Indian team put on an inspiring performance in the white-ball series and there were a lot of positives for the side. Along with the bowling unit doing considerably well, Rishabh Pant stepping up in tough situations was one of the biggest takeaways. Pant scored a hundred in the one-off Test and had put India in a strong position by the end of the first innings. 

He scored another century in the third ODI of the series which was instrumental in handing the Indian team a series win. Darren Gough has backed Pant saying he is full of confidence and can play his shots to all areas of the ground.
