The batting of the Indian team flopped badly in the first match played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. But in this match, Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant played such a shot, which is being discussed more than the match. Pant played an excellent reverse scoop shot off the bowling of England fast bowler Jofra Archer. This shot of Pant has also convinced former India batsman Yuvraj Singh.
Rishabh Pant played amazing shot
Actually, England’s fast bowler Jofra Archer came for bowling in the fourth over of India’s innings. On the fifth ball of this over of Archer, Rishabh Pant did what Archer himself could not believe. Pant hit the reverse scoop on Archer’s ball for a six. Everyone was surprised to see this six. Rishabh Pant had earlier hit a similar shot off the pace bowler James Anderson in the fourth Test match against England on the same ground.
