The young blood, Rishabh Pant has always proved his worth and match-winning abilities; he is utterly talented and there are no two thoughts about it. His performance in IPL and domestic matches have always been palpable and with sheer hard-work, the young man has got one more feather attested to his cap.
Rishabh Pant on Friday became first Indian wicketkeeper to knock a century against Australia in Australia in Tests. The young wicketkeeper-batsman faced 137 balls to bring up his second Test century in a match that was being played at Sydney Cricket Grounds.
Pant was batting at 96 when Australian spinner Marnus Labuschagne came to pit against him but Pant showed some sass and kicked the ball to the boundary to complete his maiden century on Australian land.
With this achievement in his kitty, Pant also became the only wicket-keeper who has two Test centuries outside Asia. The young batsman scored 114 against England in Oval Test and now he played another great inning to achieve this feat. Not just this, Pant also became the second youngest cricketer to score a hundred on Australian soil, he is behind the legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar who scored two centuries (at SCG and Perth in 1992) at the age of 18 years and 256 days and 18 years 285 days, respectively.
The Indian team is performing really well on the Australian soil and the bowling attack has been getting praises from all quarters of the world, with Pant achieving so many records, it is just like icing on the cake for the Indian team.
