“You are both only 24, but you have already achieved a lot.”
Neeraj became a household name after he ended India’s wait for an individual Olympic gold medal in athletics by winning the top prize in the men’s javelin throw at the Tokyo Olympics last year.
As for Rishabh, the wicket-keeper was recently involved in the South Tour. However, the tour didn’t bring much success for Team India, who lost 2-1 in the Test series and were whitewashed 3-0 in the ODI series.
The Indian cricket team will compete against the West Indies from February 6 in a three-match ODI and T20I series.
