After the marathon partnership of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/photos/swapnil-gugale-ankit-bawnes-unbeaten-594-run-stand-and-other-top-partnerships-in-first-class-cricket-535777" target="_blank">594 runs by Swapnil Gugale and Ankit Bawne</a> in the first innings, Delhi replied strongly and all because of Pant s triple-century. He became second wicketkeeper-batsman to score triple-ton in Ranji Trophy and seventh overall in First-Class cricket. Pant is only second batsman after Raman Lamba to do this as Delhi batsman. At the age of 19, Pant becomes third youngest batsman to score a triple-century after Wasim Jaffer and Abhinav Mukund. <p></p> <p></p>With this achievement, it is evident that Sehwag will surely tweet because he also used to represent Delhi in domestic cricket. Also, Pant s strike-rate was close to 100 and that s the way Sehwag used to play in his playing days. Pant scored 308 from just 326 deliveries at an impressive strike-rate of 94.47, which includes 42 boundaries and nine sixes. Sehwag reacted to his knock by Pant in his own witty style by taking dig at Delhi s opponent and calls his innings as the brilliant one. Pant s triple ton in this makes it third such First-Class match where two batsman scored triple-century. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="hi">Rishabh Pant ne Pant utar di. <p></p>308 , brilliant innings against Maharashtra.<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/RanjiTrophy?src=hash">#RanjiTrophy</a></p> <p></p> Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) <a href="https://twitter.com/virendersehwag/status/787572840904138756">October 16, 2016</a></blockquote> <p></p>Beside Pant, Dhruv Shorey was the second highest scorer from Delhi as he made 71 and no other could even touch 50-run mark. Despite Pant s knock, Maharashtra gained the lead of 45 runs and the match is expected to end in draw.
