Rishabh Pant has stepped up right when Team India needed him once again and this time it was in the 5th Test of the unfinished Series between India and England. The series started off in early 2022 but had to be called off ahead of the 5th match after India had taken a 2-1 lead in the series as there were a number of COVID-19 cases in the Team India contingent. However, some said that it was postponed due to the upcoming Indian Premier League 2022 season.
Whatever be the case, the final match of the series is being played now and India need a win or a draw to win the series and it would undoubtedly mark a historic day in Indian cricketing history as it is not many times that India manage to defeat England in their home turf.
Well the Indian batters did not have a very great start and it was starting to look like Team England had a chance to corner India in the first innings but their desires were marred by the Brilliant partnership between Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant. Pant, particularly was excellent in his performance and it was he who gave the Indian team and fans the hope.
He started playing in his trademark style and not before long he reached his century and took India past a very respectable total. He completed his century in an epic fashion and can be rightfully called the saviour of Team India in the first test.
Let us take a look at how Twitteratti reacted to Rishabh Pant’s performance.
