During the fourth Test against Australia at Brisbane's Gabba earlier this year, the stump mic caught Pant singing a Hindi version of the "Spiderman, Spiderman" theme song. Looks like the 23-year-old really has a thing for New York City's web-slinging crime-fighter.  

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also shared a video of Pant having fun with the drone along with his teammates, with the caption "Pulls off brilliant catches & stumpings. Hits big sixes with ease. @RishabhPant17 now has some fun with the drone camera."
