There’s just never any shortage of excitement when Rishabh Pant is around!
Even when the trailblazing lefty batsman wasn’t in his best form, he always had the ‘wow factor’. So it’s only natural that Pant made it big when he found form. That wow factor has also been on full display ever since his CricStox debut.
Let’s take a look at how Rishabh Pant became one of the ‘stocks in high demand’ on the CricStox market.
AUS Test Series 2020/21 – Start of something special
After a poor IPL 2020 season with the bat, Pant was also largely absent and quiet during the limited-overs series in Australia. But come the Test Series, and Pant was on a mission, scoring 274 runs in 3 Tests down under. Who can forget his match-winning 89* at The Gabba, giving India the series win!
He backed that up vs England at home – with 270 runs in 4 Tests, including a hundred and 2 fifties, and 155 runs in just 2 ODIs.
March 2021 – Rishabh Pant makes his CricStox debut
Pant debuted on the platform at a listing price of 34 coins/stock on March 16, 2021. Just like his on-field game, Pant’s stock did not take long to take off. His performances vs England kick-started the rise, fueled by his impending debut as an IPL captain for Delhi Capitals.
Pant’s price went from 34 coins/stock to 49.2 coins/stock as the IPL began on April 9.
While this was already a good rise in quick time, Pant was just getting started. He not only scored runs but also led his team to the top from the very start. In a week’s span (from 15/4 to 22/4), Pant’s price went from 56.23 coins/stock to 84.68 coins/stock – a rise of over 50%.
‘Wow factor’ shining bright, isn’t it? But wait, there’s more.
The rise of Rishabh Pant
After a period of consistent trading around those prices, Pant hit the 90s for the first time (at 91.67) in early May.
Despite the abrupt postponement of the second half of IPL 2021 in the first week of May, the rise of Pant continued due to his ‘future potential’. India’s leading keeper-batsman hit his peak at 99.45 coins/stock, 2 weeks after the IPL was halted.
Lack of match action and an unsuccessful WTC final for India then saw a dip in his trading price over the last few weeks.
But with a busy cricket season coming up for India, that starts with the England Tests and continues through the IPL, T20 World Cup, and beyond, watch out for Pant, who will be in focus on the field and on the CricStox market.
