Young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant gave one more display of his talent as he starred in Reliance 1’s crushing 10-wicket win over Canara Bank in the 13th DY Patil T20 Cup in neighbouring Navi Mumbai on Tuesday.
Pant, who has been named in India’s T20I squad to play England, launched a breathtaking assault on Canara Bank’s modest total of 120-7.
Pant scored an unbeaten 84 off just 34 balls with nine boundaries and six sixes. Pant shared an unbroken 123-run stand with Jitesh Sharma (35) as Canara Bank bowlers looked clueless. Pant’s show ensured Reliance 1 overhauled the target in just 10.2 overs.
The other match in the morning saw Tata Sports Club beat RBI Sports Club by 38 runs at the University Ground. In the afternoon DY Patil ‘B’ beat Western Railways by seven wickets while BPCL got the better of Jain Irrigation by 28 runs.
