The ongoing forth test match between India and England is in Team India’s grip after the second day in Ahmedabad. At the end of the second day’s play, India’s score was 7 wickets for 294 runs. Team India has got a lead of 89 runs having Washington Sundar (60) and Axar Patel (11) on the crease.
Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant hit the third Test century of his career. During his explosive inning of 101 runs young man played various kinds of shots.
Talking about a reverse sweep to Jimmy, considered a fast bowler on the first ball of the 83rd over, which went over the boundary from the top of the slip. This shot came as a surprise to all, as Anderson is one of the bowlers who does not find it easy to play such shots.
But Pant is one of those batsmen who are considered capable of making any kind of shots to any bowler. This was seen at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The clippings of this shot is becoming quite viral on different social media platforms. A senior cricket journalist, Harsha Bhogle, wrote – What joy to see young @RishabhPant17 bat. I did not think I would see a reverse sweep to Anderson with the new ball when a century was there for the taking. He will keep us on the edge of our seats and will be great for our game.
