VIDEO: Rishabh Pant hits a sensational reverse sweep against James Anderson

Rishabh Pant

Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant played a brilliant inning in the fifth test match between India and England that is being played currently at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground and he made sure that India reach a very respectable score in the first innings. At a time when it looked like England had complete control of the match, Rishabh Pant took charge and was supported by Ravindra Jadeja. Their combined partnership of over 150 runs was game-changing and put India in the front.

Rishabh Pant played a sensational knock of 146 runs and might have even scored a double century had it not been for an unlucky dismissal. We all know that Rishabh Pant is not like the other Test batters and he has a definite style on his own. Just like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he prefers not to play defensively and always plays in his signature explosive style and this was what baffled the English bowlers today as well.

In the beginning, the England bowlers, and especially James Anderson were completely dominating the Indian batters but when Rishabh Pant came in and started hitting unorthodox shots against the veteran Test bowler, James Anderson was perplexed. A particular reverse sweep that Pant played against him was what went the most viral and shocked everyone.
