The 2018 year turned out to be a great one for Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. He made his Test and ODI debut. Albeit, he strained to stay put in his position in the One Day team, the 21-year made sure that he cemented his position in the longest format. The Young Turk made his intentions clear when he deposited Adil Rashid for a six to open his account in Test cricket.
The Uttarakhand-born cricketer then went on to score his maiden international ton in the fifth and final Test against England at Kennington Oval. He then played a couple of impressive knocks against Windies and is currently plying his trade in the four-match Test series against Australia. Pant has all the more reasons to cheer as his mother Saroj Pant is celebrating her birthday today.
Pant couldn’t hold on to his emotions on the auspicious occasion. He took to Twitter, uploaded a picture along with his loved one. He captioned it and wrote, “Happy birthday mom. You are the person who is always behind me no matter what. I love you so much. Thank you for taking all the stress of mine and making it yours can’t even express my feelings in words. Love you happy birthday once again,”

Happy times for Rishabh Pant
The year 2019 has started on a happy note for the southpaw as he scored his second Test century against Tim Paine and Co at the renowned Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The left-handed batsman accomplished the ton in 137 balls and eventually remained not out on 159 from 189 balls.
His knock was laced with 15 boundaries and a colossal six of Nathan Lyon. Moreover, he cobbled together a useful stand of 204 runs with Ravindra Jadeja, who scored 81 runs. Pant’s onslaught meant India were able to score 622 runs in their first innings.
