Birmingham: There is clearly no stopping for Rishabh Pant. The 24-year-old wicketkeeper-batter has done what the veterans in the teams failed to do in this crucial game against England.
In the 61st over, India garnered 22 runs out of which Pant alone had scored 21 runs. Starting the over with a single, Pant gave the strike to Jadeja. Another single brought Pant back on strike and that was the start the fiery shots by the star player. 4,6,4,6 streak left the hosts stunned and disappointed.
