New Delhi [India], Mar 25 (ANI): Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming termed Rishabh Pant as a great young prospect of the Indian cricket during the pre-match conference here on Monday.

While praising the 21-year old, Fleming said, "Yesterday we saw one of the great young prospects of the Indian cricket playing beautifully against some of the world's best bowlers."When asked whether Fleming is planning a special plan to tackle Rishabh Pant, he said: "You have to respect so many players in the tournament and he is one of them. But there are also others in the team, so you got to be very careful with it that you do not over-plan."Delhi Capital's Pant played a scintillating knock of 78 runs off 27 balls against the Mumbai Indians on Sunday which powered his team to have a 37 runs victory against the Mumbai Indians.
