When we talk of debut matches, we normally expect batsmen to score 0 or 1 in the first ball. However, Rishabh Pant surprised us all by hitting a 6 in the 2nd delivery of Test match against England.
Adil Rashid was bowling to him & Pant hit a 6 with full confidence. Since India lost the first 2 test matches, changes were made in the team. Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Shikhar Dhawan were added to the team. On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav and Murali Vijay were not a part.
We were joyous to see his humungous six. He scored 22 in the 1st day of the 3rd test match. India’s score was 307/6. However, when Pant hit this six, everyone was surprised. Even Rashid gave an unexpected expression after Pant’s shot.
Here’s the video of his 6;
