Rishabh Pant, Kagiso Rabada feature in ICC Test team of the year

Two of Delhi Capitals’ youngsters, Rishabh Pant and Kagiso Rabada made it to the ICC Test Team of 2018. Kagiso, who was the only South African player to make it to the Test team, had a stupendous year – picking up 52 wickets and leading the wicket-takers’ chart for 2018. Kagiso played 10 Tests and averages 20.07 in 2018. His best performance came in the second Test of the series against Australia, finishing with 11 wickets from the match.

Rishabh made his debut in whites in 2018, and played a total of eight matches, scoring 537 runs including a century and two half-centuries. Rishabh broke multiple records, becoming the first wicketkeeper-batsman to score a century in England as well as in Australia and equalling MS Dhoni’s tally of most catches (11) in a Test match. He also started off his Test career with a six, becoming the first Indian and 12th cricketer to do so in the history of the game. His achievements won him the ICC Emerging Cricketer of 2018 Award.

Also, the Indian team lifting the trophy of ICC Under-19 World Cup 2018 was voted as the best moment by the fans. While our lad Prithvi Shaw led the side to win the coveted title, Manjot Kalra, too was a part of the squad and was elemental in the journey.
