Veteran Pakistani cricketer Salman Butt made a controversial statement on Rishabh Pant‘s fitness, saying Pant lacks “optimum fitness” and called him “overweight” and “not very agile”. Butt said,

Rishabh Pant jaise khelte hai waise hi khele phir ek innovation karne gaye aur ajeeb sa out hua bat ko laga phir pad pe laga and then stumps mein. Main unki fitness pe hamesha baat isliye karta hu ki jis tarike ka shots wo create karne ki koshis karte hai, agar wo fit ho toh asaani hogi ye execute karne mein. (Rishabh Pant was playing the way he likes to, but he went for something innovative and got out. It was a weird dismissal as the ball hit the bat, pad before rattling the stumps. I always speak on Rishabh Pant’s fitness because the kind of shots he plays and tries to innovate, it would be easier for him to execute those shots if he was fit.) I think he is overweight. Definitely, he is overweight and because of that, he is not very agile. He is under the level where he should be, in terms of fitness.”

Salman Butt made this controversial statement about Pant’s fitness on his YouTube channel. Butt was analyzing the performance of Rishabh Pant and others in India vs Bangladesh’s first Test match in Chattogram. Butt commented that Pant tries to play innovative shots. He further asserted that had he been fit, it would have been easier for him to implement the innovative shots.

Pant was dismissed from the field at 46 runs off 45 balls. Meanwhile, Cheteshwar Pujara (90) and Shreyas Iyer (86) paired up to take a dominant stand for India in the opening Test match.
