“He is like a mentor to me. He helps me on and off the field. He gives me hints and tries that I figure things out myself so that I do not become dependent on him but he also does not just back off from it,” Pant said during the session.
Pant also picked Dhoni as his “favourite batting partner”.
“Although my favourite batting partner is Mahi Bhai, we get very few chances to bat together. When Mahi Bhai is there, everything feels sorted out as you just have to follow his plan,” he said.
“There is Virat, Rohit, whenever you bat alongside seniors, it is a different experience,” Pant added.
