The cricket world was in awe of India’s wicket-keeper following his incredible innings on day one of the fifth Test against England.
Pant produced a phenomenal innings of 146 runs off just 111 balls rescuing India from a precarious position on the opening day of the fifth Test in Edgbaston.
His partnership with Ravindra Jadeja (83*) started with India tethering at 98/5, eventually helping the team past the 300-run mark with a magnificent 222-run stand for the sixth wicket.
