Rishabh Pant Back To His Favorite Format

Rishabh Pant is back in action for India in Test matches, where he has excelled the most, after missing the ODI series against Bangladesh.Due to his dismal form, he has received criticism from all sides for his recent performances in the Asia Cup, T20 World Cup, and New Zealand. In fact, Pant has not reached a single half-century since his match-winning century against England at Trent Bridge.

The 25-year-old has struggled in white-ball cricket, but in Test matches, he has dominated, scoring hundreds in England, Australia, and South Africa over a four-year span. Pant made two outstanding centuries in 2018, one each in South Africa and England.

India Wins The Toss And Decides To Bat First

After winning the toss for Wednesday’s first Test against Bangladesh, India’s captain KL Rahul decided to bat.

After three quick wickets, Bangladesh had the upper hand over India as players like Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Shubman Gill were lost. Vice-captain Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant, however, have shown some comeback with a 37-run partnership.
