Taking the attack to the England bowlers in the final Test, Rishabh Pant headlined India’s recovery with his magnificent innings on Friday. The young wicketkeeper-batsman came up with his third Test ton, maiden at home, to topple the visitors’ lead in the first innings. The century was peppered with some memorable hits. The first, of course, was the way hereverse swept veteran speedster James Anderson in the 83rd over, who went in with a new ball in his hand. The second highlight was the last shot as Pant reached his 100 with a six off Joe Root. His 101 off just 118 balls helped the hosts gain a dominating position in Ahmedabad.
The 23-year-old emulated former India opener Virender Sehwag and it earned him plaudits on Twitter. Pant, who was on song, played the gutsy shot against Anderson and earned praises from Sehwag, remembered for his fiery and fearless knocks. As Pant reached the three-figure mark with his heroic effort, Sehwag took to the micro-blogging site to express his joy at the youngster’s accomplishment. Sehwag was famous for reaching centuries with maximums.
