There is a reason why cricket is no less than a religion in India. Not only do fans in this part of the world take interest in how the cricketers are performing on the field, but there is also a keen interest among a section of fans to know what is brewing in their personal lives.
Of late, there have been a lot of rumours and speculations about Rishabh Pant and Urvashi Rautela after the actress had claimed in an interview that a certain "RP" waited for hours to meet him. Post that, there was social media warfare with both not naming each other but responding to each other's claims.
And now when Shubman Gill appeared on a Punjabi television show, he was asked to give his opinion on what's exactly the matter and what Pant's teammates think about the situation. While the interviewer did not name Urvashi directly, Shubman suggested that Rishabh Pant does not have anything to do with the actress and does not pay any attention to her antics on social media and in her interviews.
"There is nothing from Rishabh Pant’s side. He doesn’t get distracted by her activities. Actually, Urvashi wants that someone teases her," he says in Punjabi.Have a look at the video here:
Meanwhile, Gill and Pant are currently part of the India squad that is in New Zealand. While the right-handed top-order batter failed to make the squad for the T20 World Cup 2022 where the Men in Blue crashed out of the semifinals and is yet to make his T20I debut, with the next T20 World Cup in 2 years' time, the team management is likely to give a chance to youngsters and make a team for the future.
With players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul among others rested for this tour, Hardik Pandya has been named the captain of the T20I part of this tour while Shikhar Dhawan will lead the team in ODIs.
The first New Zealand vs India T20I was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain. The teams will square off for the second T20I at the Bay Oval on Sunday (November 20).
