Opened account in Test Cricket with a 6, first century in Test Cricket with a 6. Very impressive young man- Rishabh Pant. A brilliant innings from KL Rahul as well. Shining light amidst a difficult tour.

Starts his career with a six, gets his first century with a six. This will be fantastic for Rishabh Pant's confidence going ahead. Big plus from this last day
