Yuvraj Singh, the former Indian all-rounder, is well known for his hilarious antics and trolling his teammates and colleagues. He pulled off another one on Rishabh Pant on the eve of the latter’s birthday via a hilarious Tweet.
On the occasion of Rishabh’s birthday, as he turned 23 years old, Yuvraj Singh posted a hilarious message on Twitter. The post consisted of an old picture of the two and a caption that made everyone burst into laughter.
The Tweet read, “Jiska naam hai Pant lekin harkatein hain nikkar waali. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday @rishabpant. Stay safe and have a successful IPL.”
It meant, “Whose name is Pant but antics are like underwear.” The Tweet was certainly a hilarious one and everyone enjoyed it with a good laugh.

Many other Indian cricketers apart from Yuvraj also wished Pant a very happy birthday on Twitter. The likes of Virat Kohli, Ishant Sharma, Shreyas Iyer, and Suresh Raina showered their love and appreciation on the social media platform.
Rishabh is currently playing for Delhi Capitals in the IPL and they also wished him in brilliant fashion. The franchisee posted a video of Pant hitting 23 sixes in a practice session. Certainly a fitting tribute to the hard-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman.
Pant celebrated his birthday early as he played a good hand in his side’s win against Kolkata Knight Riders. The DC batsman scored a quickfire 38 runs off just 17 balls to propel his side to 228. It is the highest score in this year’s IPL so far, beating the 224 runs posted by Rajasthan Royals.
Delhi Capitals were put in to bat by KKR and they took full advantage of their wayward bowling. Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, and captain Shreyas Iyer showed no mercy to the KKR bowlers. Shaw scored 66 runs off 41 runs and Dhawan slotted in with 26 runs off 16 deliveries.
However, the DC skipper was certainly the star of the show. He bludgeoned the KKR bowlers all over the park and scored 88 runs off 38 balls. It consisted of seven 4’s and six 6’s as the Capitals posted a mammoth total of 228 runs on the board.
KKR tried their level best to get to the total during the chase but were unable to reach the target. Sunil Narine perished for just 3 runs but Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana played well together. Gill scored 28 runs of 22 balls while Rana slotted in with 58 off 35.
However, a mini-collapse in the middle order led the Knights to disaster. Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, and Pat Cummins were unable to deliver and could not stand with Eoin Morgan for a steady partnership.
Morgan ended up scoring a quick 44 alongside Rahul Tripathi, who scored 36 off 16. However, both their efforts proved futile as the Capitals’ bowlers ensured to hold their nerves and win the contest by 18 runs.
