Rishabh Pant surpasses Sachin Tendulkar.

Rishabh Pant surpasses Sachin Tendulkar to achieve a major feat in international cricket in the ENG vs. IND match.

Rishabh Pant scored a century in the England vs. India match on Day 1 at Edgbaston, hitting four sixes.

On Day 1 of the ongoing 5th Test between India and England at Edgbaston, Rishabh Pant was in a destructive mood as he spearheaded India’s counterattack with a brilliant century. When India was struggling at 98/5 at one stage, Pant slammed 146 off just 111 deliveries and joined Ravindra Jadeja in a 222-run partnership to enable India to reach 338/7 at Stump’s. Pant scored a magnificent knock in which he struck four sixes and 19 fours. He surpassed Sachin Tendulkar in the process and is now the youngest Indian to hit 100 sixes in international cricket.

Pant reached the milestone at the age of 24, whereas the famous Tendulkar had done so at the age of 25.

48 sixes in Tests, 24 in ODIs, and 31 in T20Is are now Pant’s totals.

Before the Edgbaston test, Pant had hit 99 sixes in international cricket. In the 37th over against Jack Leach, he hit his 100th six to attain the milestone.

Furthermore, it was the opening six of the game.

After James Anderson and Matthew Potts destroyed the visitors’ top order in Birmingham, Pant’s brash knock saved India from an impasse.

Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Shreyas Iyer were all dismissed by Anderson, while Hanuma Vihari and Virat Kohli were caught by Potts.

After that, Pant launched an assault on the English bowlers, with Jadeja lending competent support from the other side.

The southpaw reached his century in 89 pitches, which is the fastest time in Indian history for a wicketkeeper-batsman.

He then picked up the pace more before finally edging a delivery that Joe Root had flighted up outside off-stump.

Fifth Test century and third against England for Rishabh Pant.
