Rishabh Pant has challenged his idol Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League, starting March 23. Pant is competing for his spot in the Indian cricket team with Dhoni but he is the star of Delhi Capitals side in the IPL. Dhoni is the most successful IPL captain with Chennai Super Kings. Mahi bhai be ready, I'm coming to show you the game, Pant says.

With exactly a month to go for the IPL, the broadcasters of the tournament released a promotion video featuring Pant where he talked about how Dhoni is his idol but in the IPL, he is looking to come down hard at his team.

Mahi bhai na guru ke samaan hain. Agar Mahi bhai nahi hote na, pata nahi mai wicketkeeper-batsman hota, nahi hota [Mahi bhai is like a teacher. If Mahi bhai wouldn't have been there, I don't know if I would have been a wicketkeeper-batsman].

Lekin is baari unki team pe main aisa barsoonga ki captain cool, cool nahi rahenge [But this time, I will rain down at his team so hard that captain cool won't remain cool].

Mahi bhai tayyar rehna, game dikhane aa raha hoon [Mahi bhai be ready, I'm coming to show you the game].
