Young Indian batsman Rishabh Pant played yet another significant innings against Windies as he scored 92 runs in the second Test. The left-hander impressed everyone with his clarity and aggressive batting style but he missed on a hundred by a whisker and this has left Twitter heartbroken.
After restricting Windies to 311, India got off to a solid start. But the visitors staged a strong comeback by picking up quick wickets in the afternoon session. Pant walked to the crease with Team India four down for 162. Windies was still ahead of India and only the tailenders were to bat for India. In this tricky situation, the left-hander backed his instincts and played his natural game. By the time the day ended, Pant was still at the crease and India was just few runs behind the visitors.
It was expected that the wicket-keeper batsman will get a big score today. However he failed to make any impact in the morning. He added only seven runs to his overnight score of 85 and was dismissed by Gabriel.
The Indian wicket-keeper was dismissed in the nineties for the second consecutive time. In the first match too he was dismissed for the same score.
The left-hand batsman had scored an aggressive 84-ball 92 run knock in the Rajkot Test and today also he went back after scoring 92 runs off 134 balls.
Pant’s failure to score a hundred left a lot of fans heartbroken and their reactions were seen on Twitter.
After Pant’s dismissal, Indian innings came to a quick end as Jason Holder produced a five-wicket haul. India was all out for 367 runs and managed to get a lead of only 56 runs.
