VIDEO: Rishabh Pant hits an extraordinary Four on Joe Root’s bouncer

As we all know by now, Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant played a sensational knock on Day 1 of the 5th Test series between India and England that is being played at the Edgbaston Cricket ground in England. For the unknown, this is the 5th and the series-deciding match of the Test series between the two nations that took place on England’s home turf at the beginning of 2022 but had to be postponed due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in the Indian contingent. When the series was postponed, 4 of its matches had already been played and India had a solid lead of 2-1. 

The series-deciding match is finally being played now after about 6 months and India just need a draw or a win to take the series home. 

England won the toss and opted to bowl first and although they had full control of the match in the beginning, the solid partnership between Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja made sure that the Blues reach a massive target. 

Rishabh Pant was particularly fearless and his 146 runs knock in his signature style gave hope to the Indian team and its fans. 

One of Pant’s shots against Joe Root particularly went viral, simply because of its brilliance. Joe Root is a spinner and him bowling a bouncer is weird, to begin with. However, what was even more shocking was the fact that Rishabh Pant scooped it behind for a four.
