Australia vs India 4th Test Sydney: Young Rishabh Pant seems to know how to win hearts! During the second day of the fourth Test, Pant was seen doing what seemed like a martial art stunt on the field while being served drinks. What we can guess is that Pant was doing some stretching as he had been in the middle under scorching heat for a couple of hours. He has already hit a half-century and is going strong with Ravindra Jadeja at the other end. Pant has had a series to remember as he has picked up more than 20 dismissals to go with 200+ runs in the ongoing four-match series.
Here is the unique way in which Pant was stretching on-the-field.
Earlier, it was Nathan Lyon who finally brought an end to Cheteshwar Pujara’s marathon 193. Pujara looked all set to bring up his fourth double century and that is when he was caught and bowled by Lyon. It was also Lyon’s 15th caught and bowled in his career. But the Indian innings was anchored by Pujara as he has done all through the Australian summer.
Hanuma Vihari would have felt unlucky as he was dismissed for 42 while he was looking good to get to a half century. Replays showed that it had not come off either his bat or glove and was wrongly given out.
At the time of filing the copy, India was 448/6 and Pant was on 65 along with Jadeja on nine. India would ideally be looking to get anywhere close of more than 500 before they declare the innings. India will certainly not look to bat twice in the Test match.
