Rishabh Pant has an impeccable record in Test cricket and he is one of the best wicket keeper’s going around. But the left-hander is often criticized for his performances in white ball cricket as he is yet to leave a mark in this format. Before this game, Pant had played 26 ODIs and had failed to cross the 100-run mark. He also bagged the unwanted record of becoming the first wicketkeeper to score three ducks in a row in ODIs in SENA countries.

However, when India was reeling at 72 for 4 while chasing 259 in the series decider, the youngster stepped up to score his maiden century in ODI at Manchester’s Old Trafford stadium.

Pant, along with Hardik, stitched a 133-run stand and batted England out of the game. Rishabh Pant also redeemed himself as three years ago on the same ground, he was unable to take India over the line against New Zealand in the semi-final.
