In the fourth Test being played between India and Australia, Team India’s star wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant made history by making a century. After making century in Australia, Pant also made many records in his name. As soon as Pant had made a century on his home against Australia, he made that record his name, which could not have been any wicketkeeper in India, including MS Dhoni, Rahul Dravid.
Yet, despite the good game in Australia, Rishabh Pant was not picked for the oneday and T20 series against Nuwejland and Australia.
You are told that only 4 wicket-keeper batsmen of India have so far played hundreds out of Asia and during this period, Pant is the only player who has done this twice. In the year 1959, Vijay Manjrekar in West Indies, Ajay Ratra in the West Indies in 2002, Riddhiman Saha in the West Indies (104) scored in the West Indies, in terms of centuries of Indian wicketkeepers.
In addition to these three, Pant has made a big achievement in England in 2018 (114) and now with hundred in Australia. At the same time, Pant has now equaled the record of the highest number of centuries by Asian wicketkeepers outside Asia. Outside Asia, Moin Khan, Mushfikur Rahim and Rishab Pant have 2-2 centuries.
Let us tell you that Pant’s Test career is the second century and before that he scored a century in the fifth Test match against England last year.
Seeing his game, it seems that he should be given a place in the three departments of cricket because he is only 21 years old Like Virat Kohli, pant can become a great player if he get these oppurtunies.
