A compilation of Rishabh Pant batting has been doing the rounds on Twitter. The video, edited and uploaded by a fan, was flipped to simulate how southpaw Pant would look if he batted right-handed.

Rishabh Pant has been in some form lately. He has two centuries across the past month from India’s tour of England, the first his riveting 146 in the rescheduled fifth Test at Edgbaston, and then his maiden ODI century in the series decider that helped India chase down 256.
Many users compared Pant’s style in the video to the right-handed Dhoni.
am I the only one who show that first shot and thought it was dhoni

Others pointed out how much cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing his technique appears than when he bats left-handed.
Why does a right-handed Pant look more aesthetic and technically correct than when he's left-handed?🤔 Usually left-handed batsmen look more elegant.
