Rishabh Pant IPL
by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Watch: Three years before his wonder shot against James Anderson in the Ahmedabad Test, Rishabh Pant hit Hardik Pandya for a similar reverse lap in IPL 2018.

Pant, who scored an outstanding century in the fourth Test against England, played some powerful shots in his knocks. The highlight of his innings was his incredible reverse shot against Jimmy Anderson, which he hit at 89 not out and against the new ball.

Pant has been practising the shot for a while now. He played it against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2018 in a game where he smacked 64 runs in just 44 balls.
