Rishabh Pant will score more Test centuries than Dhoni: Ricky Ponting

Ricky Ponting, Former Australia captain showered praise on wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, calling him "another" Adam Gilchrist after the Rishabh's blazing knock of 159 runs in the fourth Test.
 
"He is a real talent and an incredibly good ball striker. He has got a really good game sense as well. I have been lucky enough to coach him at Delhi (Capitals)," said Ponting, who had worked with the Indian during his stint with Delhi franchise at the Indian Premier League.
 
"He has got to do a bit of work on his keeping and he will also become a better batsman. "We talk about him in the commentary box and he is sort of like another Adam Gilchrist," Ricky Ponting told to cricket.com.au.
 
“We talk about MS Dhoni all the time and his impact on Indian cricket. He played a lot of Tests for India but made only six Test hundreds. This kid (Rishabh Pant) will make a lot more Test hundreds than that.”
 
Ricky Ponting believes that Rishabh will score more centuries than former Test Captain MS Dhoni.
