Rishabh Pant is now the highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper in the 4th innings of a Test match and is also the second youngest wicketkeeper to register a Test ton aged 20 years and 342 days.

Rishabh Pant’s belligerent 114 of 146 deliveries proved that this 20-year-old is here to say and even though India were fighting a losing cause, KL Rahul and Pant intent was a breath of fresh air. Rahul made 149 before he was cleaned up by adil Rashid, but it Pant who was the talk of the town.

The man who started his international career with six, reached his maiden Test hundred with a six thus becoming the first Indian wicketkeeper to score a century in on of the SENA (South AFrica, England, New Zealand and Australia).

His is now the highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper in the 4th innings of a Test match and is also the second youngest wicketkeeper to register a Test ton aged 20 years and 342 days.

This knock more or less assures that the Delhi player will be the first choice wicketkeeper for West Indies and Australia series, even though his keeping has a long way to go. And this has been an  extraordinary series for the youngster. After the highs of the second-ball six and a record seven dismissals in an innings, Pant had to endure a 29-ball duck in the fourth innings but finishes the series on a high with a ‘Pant’emonium.
