On Day 2 of the 4th Test match at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad, it was Rishabh Pant’s fantastic performance that not only stole the show but also put the host back in the driver’s seat to dominate the game. After losing three crucial wickets early in the game, it seemed like England had an upper hand. However, thanks to Washington Sundar and Pant’s contribution, India got back into the game at the close of play.

Scoring 101 runs off just 118 balls, Pant’s spectacular innings impressed all online, who were already his fans for his performance behind the stumps. The 23-year-old all-rounder displayed tremendous tenacity as he knocked a ball out of the park, reverse-scooping Jimmy Anderson with the new ball.

And if that wasn’t enough to leave fans in a frenzy, he reached his Test century in style with a six off Dom Bess’ delivery, reminding all of Virender Sehwag’s fearless batting. Not just Sehwag himself, but fans too couldn’t get enough of him and started to celebrate with memes and jokes.

Here’s how netizens reacted to Pant’s performance online:

The Men in Blue eventually ended the innings scoring 294-7, 89 runs ahead of England who secured a total of 205 in the first innings.
