Earlier in the Test, Rishabh Pant played a crucial knock of 58* to help Team India reach a score of 329 in their first innings. When he walked out to bat towards the end of Day 1, Rohit Sharma was just dismissed for a brilliant hundred.Ajinkya Rahane soon followed Rohit and Team India were depended on the 23-year-old to take them to a daunting first-innings total. Rishabh Pant didn’t quite get the support he was expecting from his partners at the other end.However, he took calculative risks and dominated the opposition bowlers. His assault on Jack Leach in the first Test played on England skipper Joe Root’s mind and that certainly kept the left-arm spinner out of the attack.After bringing up his sixth Test half-century, Pant was at his best through his chatter behind the stumps. Team India will be resuming the post-lunch session in a dominating position with the visitors reeling at 39-4.
