Pant reverse shot
by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Watch: In his astonishing hundred against England in the fourth Test in Ahmedabad, Rishabh Pant played an outrageous reverse shot against James Anderson, who was bowling with the new ball.

In an innings that turned the game on its head, Pant smacked 13 fours and two sixes to take India to a dominant position at the end of day two. One of the highlights of his innings was the shot against Anderson, where he premeditated a reverse shot over the slip cordon.

Pant was batting on 89 at that point and Anderson, the seam bowler with more Test wickets than any other, was racing in with the new ball. However, without a care in the world, the left-hander played this audacious stroke, as if to make a statement.

He finished with a 118-ball 101 – the third century of his Test career.
