Rishabh Pant gave this answer to Yuvraj Singh's tweet about "45 minutes conversation", it is getting fiercely viral!


Rishabh Pant became the hero of the Indian cricket team by scoring his first ODI century against England in Manchester on Sunday. Pant's unbeaten 125 off 113 balls helped India recover from 72/4 to chase down the target of 260 in 42.1 overs. Pant and Hardik Pandya (71, 55 balls) shared a 133-run fifth-wicket partnership to help India register a five-wicket win and win the series by a 2-1 margin. Pant had been battling poor form in the white ball format but came out when needed the most.

After the scintillating innings, former Indian cricket team player Yuvraj Singh posted a tweet indicating that he may have a lengthy conversation with wicketkeeper-batsman Pant.

Yuvraj wrote in his tweet, "Looks like 45 mins conversation came in handy!! Well played @RishabhPant17 That's how you pace your innings @HardikPandya7 Enjoyed watching."

Pant replied on Monday, "It did, indeed yuvi pa" and added a wink emoji.

Pant, who was adjudged the man of the match, hoped that he would remember his maiden ODI century for the rest of his life. Pant said, "Hopefully I will remember (this innings) for a lifetime. When I was batting I was concentrating on one ball. When your team is under pressure and you bat like this. I aspire to do something."
