'He can entertain people in all forms of cricket', Ravi Shastri praises this Indian cricketer!


In the decider of the ODI series between India and England, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant smashed an unbeaten 125 off 113 balls, studded with 16 fours and two sixes, to lead India to a 2-1 series win.


Former India head coach Ravi Shastri, who is in England as a member of Sky Sports' commentary panel, praised Pant, calling him a player who has the ability to entertain cricket watchers across all formats of the game.

Shastri said, "He is great for the world game - he has the ability and the power to entertain people in all formats. It was a special century as India was down and out at one stage, but he is a special player. "

Let us inform you that Pant took 71 balls to complete his half-century, but after that, he got runs at a fast pace. He took only 35 balls to convert that half-century into a century. After reaching his century, Pant hit five fours in a single over from fast bowler David Willey.


Former India all-rounder Shastri further said that Pant has started to mature more in terms of cricket intelligence. Now watching the fielders playing shots and also being able to change strikes, is improving cricketing intelligence.
