Rishabh Pant led India’s fightback by smashing his fifth Test century on Day 1 of the ongoing rescheduled fifth Test against England at Edgbaston. Pant scored a counter-attacking century off just 89 balls as India managed to recover from a top-order collapse. The 24-year-old hit 15 boundaries and a six en route the 100-run mark. With India reeling at 98 for five, Pant and Ravindra Jadeja stitched an unbeaten partnership for the sixth wicket and took India past the 200-run mark.
This was the fastest century by an Indian wicketkeeper in Tests.
Pant also crossed the 2,000-run mark in Tests during his swashbuckling knock as he frustrated England bowlers.
This was Rishabh Pant’s second Test century in England, and his fourth one away from home.
