Share this

21-year-old Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is constantly making big knocks in international cricket. It seems that he vowed to break all records of former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Only in nine test matches in his career, he made many records in international cricket.

Pant became the first Indian wicket-keeper batsman to hit the century in Sydney on Friday. He completed his second Test century in 137 balls. He remained not out on 159 * in 189 balls. He hit 15 fours and a six in this innings. Because of Pant and Pujara’s knock, Team India announced their first innings on 622/6 on the second day of final test.

With 159* run knock, Pant broke Dhoni’s record of most runs made by an Indian wicket-keeper in an innings out of India. Dhoni had smashed 148 in Pakistan’s Faisalabad against Pakistan in 2006. It was the biggest innings played by any Indian wicket-keeper on foreign soil before the innings at Sydney, Australia.
