Rishabh Pant's 'Pantastic' century against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2018

Rishabh Pant's 'Pantastic' century against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2018

Delhi Daredevils (DD) might be going through a lean patch this Indian Premier League (IPL), but their wicket-keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is having the time of his life. Pant left the field with his head held high, however, having destroyed arguably the tournament's best bowling attack to register the highest IPL score by an Indian player.

"For Rishabh it will happen, he will get there. I don't know if it's my best knock but till now it's one of my best", he said.

However, for some inexplicable reason, Indian selectors failed to pick the budding Delhi Daredevils star for India's T20I squad scheduled to tour England and Ireland in August 2018.

"For the likes of Pant, Ishan Kishan (who scored a 21-ball 52), time will come". They are young and there is no hurry. Delhi got off to a awful start as they lost both the openers Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy off consecutive deliveries in the 4th over. They will play for India in the years to come.

"Yes T20 is different, opportunities are lot lesser".

Chief selector MSK Prasad has often said the wicketkeeper-batsman remains very much on India's limited-overs radar, while Pant knows his sporadic global appearances depend less on his performances and more on Dhoni's fitness and availability.

"To win that game which was absolutely lost for India...and I think Dinesh deserves more than anybody else because he is a very very good player".

"The innings he played last night, I saw Brendon McCullum from the other end in the first (IPL) game in Bangalore against RCB in 2008 where he got 150 (158). I was batting with him, but to see Rishabh Pant play the way he did yesterday was phenomenal". On the back of a marathon 176-run second-wicket partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson, the visitors made light work of the tricky chase, winning the encounter by a massive 9-wicket margin.
