What a way to begin run bank sirji !!
Rishabh Pant from Delhi on Saturday became the first Indian batsman to open his Test cricket run bank account with a sixer. Kohli, the skipper being dismissed just 2 balls before Pant, made his Test debut in the third Test of the five-match series at Trent Bridge,
He smashed leg-spinner Adil Rashid for a straight six on only his second ball of the innings to get off the mark. Pant is the 12th batsman to do so
Let us have a look at the list of players who had done this before
1. Eric Freeman
2. Carlisle Best
3. Keith Dabengwa,
4. Dale Richards
5. Shafiul Islam
6. Jahurul Islam
7. Al-Amin Hossain
8. Mark Craig
9. Dhananjaya De Silva
10. Kamrul Islam Rabbi
11. Sunil Ambris.
12. Risabh Pant came as replacement for injured Dinesh Karthik.
Not many have scored many runs after this great hit.
Hope Pant proves to be an exception.
