The Twenty20s are back, and so are the mavericks’ fancy shots.

Rishabh Pant, a specialist in the shortest format of the game, was seen hitting one such shot during a practice session ahead of India’s first of the three-match series against New Zealand.

In a video posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the left-handed Pant can be seen making a last-minute change in stance to unleash a switch-hit.

Sure, that would have fetched him a boundary.

“Welcome to the T20 format. What would you call this shot from @RishabPant777,” BCCI wrote the caption to its 8.29 million Twitter followers.

“Bloody horrendous..!!” former Indian cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi replied.

“The guy is insanely talented. Get him in the ODI setup asap!” read another comment.

India will hope Pant shows similar charisma when the two teams clash in the opening match at Westpac Stadium, Wellington, on Wednesday.
