Birmingham. Rishabh Pant got Team India out of a bad situation by scoring a century on the first day of the 5th Test. He played a brilliant innings of 146 runs. This is his second Test century in England. No other Indian has been able to score a century here as a wicketkeeper. Ravindra Jadeja also scored a century in the match. Due to this, the Indian team was able to score 416 runs in the first innings. In reply, England had scored 60 for 3 till the game was stopped due to rain on the second day. Joe Root 19 and Jonny Bairstow are playing on 6 runs. Both performed brilliantly in the last series against New Zealand. In such a situation, the Indian team would like to get them out soon.
At the end of the first day’s play, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) tried to tell Joe Root big, ignoring Rishabh Pant’s performance in the highlights. Dinesh Karthik looked annoyed at this attitude of the ECB. He is currently in England with the Indian T20 team. After the end of the first day’s play, the ECB wrote, Joe Root dismissed Havi Pant. It is known that Pant had scored a century in just 89 balls in the match. This is the fastest century as an Indian wicketkeeper.
could have been a good headline
Dinesh Karthik wrote in response that after such an enjoyable and exciting day of play, I am sure that there could have been a better headline than this in England cricket. Rishabh Pant’s innings and the game of both the teams was good. Karthik was given the command of the team for the practice match of T20 against Derbyshire. The team easily won this match by 7 wickets. T20 series between India and England is starting from 7th July.
This match is important for Team India in terms of World Test Championship. If the team wins the match and gets 12 points, then it will get 60 percent of the points. Right now Australia’s team is on top with about 78 percent points. In such a situation, there is a lot of difference between him and the Indian team.
