India vs England 5th Test Kennington Oval: 20-year-old Rishabh Pant brought up his maiden fifty after KL Rahul slammed his 5th Test ton in the ongoing final Test at Kennington. Pant came into bat at the loss of Hanuma Vihari for a duck. Pant reached his fifty off 78 balls and more importantly India kept that hope alive for India of playing out a draw. It looked impossible when India got off to a disastrous start, lost three wickets in quick succession. First, Rahane and Rahul got a 100-run stand and then Pant did the same with KL Rahul.Also Read - IPL Auction Highlights: RPSG Group Takes Lucknow with 7000 Crore Bid, CVC Capital Bags Ahmedabad
