Be it Test cricket and Rishabh Pant is present at the crease, then you are sure to make a record. After scoring a century in the first innings of Edgbaston Test, Rishabh Pant scored a brilliant half-century in the second innings and with this a record which had never happened before in Indian Test cricket history.
As soon as Rishabh Pant hit a half-century in the second innings of the Edgbaston Test, he became the first Indian wicket-keeper to score half-century after century on foreign soil. From Dhoni to Farooq Engineer, no one could accomplish this feat, but Pant did it.
Let us tell you that only two wicketkeepers of India have been able to score a century in the first innings and half-century in the second innings. In 1973, Farooq Engineer scored 121 and 66 runs in the Mumbai Test against England. Although Pant is the first Indian wicketkeeper to achieve this feat on foreign soil.
Pant scored a half-century in 76 balls in the second innings of the Edgbaston Test. In the second innings, England’s fast bowlers were bowling amazingly but Pant did not stop and like the first innings, he scored a half-century with the help of 7 fours. Pant, however, was dismissed after scoring 57 runs in the second innings of the Edgbaston Test.
Pant lost his wicket in the second innings while playing reverse sweep. He applied a reverse sweep on the ball of Jack Leach and the ball hit his gloves and landed in the hands of Joe Root standing in the slips.
