Team India cricketer Rishabh Pant put on a show today on the Day of the ongoing 5th test between India and England that is being played at the Edgbaston Stadium in England. The match between India and England that is being played today was originally scheduled to be played in early 2022 with the other 4 matches which were played beforehand but were postponed due to IPL and the rise of COVID-19 cases in the Indian Contingent. However, it is now being completed and India currently leads with a 2-1 margin. The Blues need just a draw or a win to secure the series while the Englishmen need a win to draw the series.
English captain Joe Root won the toss and opted to bowl first and in the beginning, it looked like they were completely dominating the match. Indian wickets were falling down one by one and they seemed to be helpless. However, the partnership between Jadeja and Rishabh Pant changed the entire dynamics of the game.
Rishabh Pant scored a brilliant knock of 146 runs while Ravindra Jadeja is currently not out at 87 at stumps. Talking about Rishabh Pant’s innings, the wicket-keeper batsman was in a complete mood today. Once he completed his century, he shifted to 4th gear and eventually hit 22 runs off Jack Leach in a particular over. He even hit a 101 m six during that.
