IND vs ENG: Video of Rishabh Pant handing out Man of the Match champagne to Ravi Shastri went viral!


When India was in a slowdown after losing three quick wickets, Rishabh Pant along with Hardik Pandya put on a 133-run stand to put India on the line. The Indian wicketkeeper played an unbeaten 125 to help Team India beat England by 5 wickets with 47 balls to spare in Manchester.


With this win, the Men in Blue registered a memorable 2–1 series win at Old Trafford. Pant's innings also helped him bag the man of the match award for which he received a medal and a bottle of champagne.

Talking with the presenter, he laughed when asked if he would remember it and said, "Hopefully I will remember (this knock) for the rest of my life. I am concentrating on one ball at a time." It was when I was batting. When your team is under pressure and your bat is like that.. that's something I aspire to do.

"I've always enjoyed playing in England, as well as enjoying the atmosphere and the situation. The more you play the more experience you get.

Soon after the conversation, Pant met commentator Ravi Shastri before returning to his team and the two were seen hugging each other. But what caught everyone's attention was the former India head coach taking a champagne bottle from Pant's hand. Pant also laughed out loud at this gesture.

Talking about the struggle, Pandya got the Man of the Series award for his all-rounder innings. In the third game, brilliant bowling from Pandya (4/24) and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (3/60) helped India bundle out England for 259 in 45.5 overs.
