Rishabh Pant achieves a remarkable feat by becoming the first Indian Wicketkeeper to enter into the top 10 of the ICC Men’s Test Rankings list for batsmen. Pant attained his career-best 6th position in the ICC Test Rankings list.
Rishabh Pant has been in a gleaming form in India’s last two-Test series against Australia & on home ground against England. Pant registered his third test century during the fourth test match against England in Ahmedabad. His IPL franchise Delhi Capitals took to Twitter to congratulate the wicket-keeper batsman for achieving this remarkable feat.
Earlier Rishabh Pant had faced many ups & downs in his career. He has been dropped from India’s white-ball team for their Australia tour after having an average outing in the IPL 2020. However, things changed for Pant in the last six months.
Rishabh Pant has registered two half-centuries against Australia. Pant’s one century helped team India to secure an unlikely draw in Sydney. And the other century helped his team to win the Border Gavaskar Tets Series by clinching victory against Australia at Gabba.
Against Australia & England, he hit a massive 92 runs in the first test. Followed by an unbeaten 58 runs in the second test. It was Rishabh Pant’s match-winning century in the fourth test which helped team India to seal a 3-1 series victory. After showing some firing cameos in the T20I series, Pant shined bright in the ODI series against England.
Replacing injured Shreyas Iyer in the second ODI, Rishabh Pant hit a blistering 77 runs off just 40 balls to help India win the match. In the series decider ODI match Pant saved India from facing a defeat by hitting a well-composed 78 runs off 62 balls.
Due to Shreyas Iyer’s shoulder injury, Rishabh Pant was handed the captaincy of the DC team for the IPL 2021. Rishabh Pant has very well played the role of a Captain by guiding Delhi Capitals to 2nd spot on the IPL Points table. However, the tournament got postponed indefinitely on Tuesday due to the outbreak of COVID-19 into the bio-bubbles.
