After Team India pulled off a brilliant victory in the second Test against England at Lord's, they now have a long break ahead of the next match. The third Test is still a week away as it is scheduled to begin on August 25 at Leeds. However, the visitors are showing no signs of complacency as they are back to training. But just like always, Rishabh Pant was also having some entertainment during his gym session.
The 23-year-old was notably doing his exercise session with Axar Patel on Wednesday as they also posed for a few photographs together. It is no secret that the duo shares an amazing bond with each other, as they also play for the same franchise in IPL - Delhi Capitals.
Pant comes up with an unorthodox drill with Axar
Just like his batting, Rishabh Pant wanted to add his touch of unorthodox element in the gym as well. During the workout, the explosive wicketkeeper was seen performing a hilarious drill with Axar Patel standing on his lap.
The 23-year-old was lifting the all-rounder up and down while holding him with his hand. It was quite an impressive demonstration of strength by Rishabh Pant on his Instagram Story, which would have certainly flooded his DMs. Although Pant looked quite focused while performing the workout, Axar can be seen enjoying the moment to the fullest.

Axar bhai brings X Factor to the gym: Pant
Apart from sharing the footage of their workout on story, Rishabh Pant also posted images with Axar Patel on Instagram. It looked that the duo had quite a fun time at gym on Wednesday as both of them flexed their muscles while posing for the photograph.
It was also very clear that Pant really enjoyed the unorthodox drill during the gym session as he stated in the caption, "Axar bhai, always bringing the X Factor to the gym 💪🤣🤣."
Talking about Pant's form with the bat so far, he has got starts in all the innings but has failed to convert it into a big score. Having registered scores of 25, 37 and 22 in the series so far, the southpaw would be hoping to come up with an impactful innings at Headingley in third Test.
