Young wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been signed up by sports management company, Professional Management Group (PMG) in a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
Pant, who played a pivotal role for the Indian Colts in the recently concluded ICC U-19 World Cup, has been gaining great momentum in his rise and was also bought by IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils following his U-19 success.
The deal will see PMG manage the 18-year-old Pant’s endorsements and brand associations, corporate profile, patents and digital rights, and PR duties, a PMG release said.
“Rishabh is an excellent addition to PMG’s team. We believe that he along with Sarfaraz (Khan) is the future of Indian cricket and we at PMG will offer them all the support required to help them in their transition from junior to senior cricket smoothly.
Identifying and signing young talent is a part of PMG’s future strategy and we are very happy that Rishabh has agreed to partner us in our vision,” said PMG’s COO, Melroy DSouza.
