Rishabh beats Dhoni...Blasts swashbuckling 100, creates this record..India smell victory

Young Rishabh Pant made amends for his poor glovework with a scintillating hundred as India reached 298 for 5 against England at tea in pursuit of a world record target of 464 in the fifth and final Test. Left-handed Pant was batting 101 and added 177 runs for the sixth wicket with KL Rahul (142 batting) as India require 166 runs in 32 overs in the final session to earn a world record victory. The second session certainly belonged to Pant, who hit 14 boundaries and three sixes including one over deep mid-wicket off Adil Rashid to complete a well-deserved hundred.Rahul who had attacked during the first session dropped anchor allowing Pant to play a free-flowing game. Having performed below par with the gloves, the century would certainly give him oxygen ahead of the West Indies home series. With Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid in operation for the better part, Pant muscled the balls through the gaps with some delectable drives through off and powerful slog shots through the on-side.This was incidentally the first ever hundred by an Indian keeper on English soil surpassing previous best of 92 by MS Dhoni.

Pant needs more time but former India keepers want clear selection policy

Rishabh Pant's glovework has been shoddy in England and he needs to cover a lot of ground before he can be trusted as a Test-level wicket-keeper, some of the former India stumpers said on Tuesday. The 20-year-old has conceded an unprecedented 76 byes in six innings in the ongoing Test series against England although at least 20-25 of those runs were not exactly his fault.
