India vs Australia 4th Test Sydney: India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant brought up his second Test century in 137 balls on Day 2 of the 4th Test at Sydney Cricket Ground. It came at a great pace as was the need of the hour as India was looking to declare the innings with a score in excess of 500 as they did not want to bat another time in the Test. Things went according to plan as Pant upped the ante once Cheteshwar Pujara departed seven runs short of his fourth double hundred. Ravindra Jadeja joined the other southpaw and they stepped up the accelerator as Pant played a few adventurous shots and it came off beautifully well as he brought up his second double century after he has got his maiden Test century in England.

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. Meanwhile, Pant has also scored more runs in the four-match Test series than the Indian captain. Rishabh Pant (291) now has more runs than Virat Kohli (282) in this series. He also became the first Indian wicketkeeper to score a hundred in Australia
At the time of filing the copy, India was 509/6 and Pant was on 100 along with Jadeja on 31. 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.
