Rishabh Pant Centuries

Rishabh Pant is an Indian cricketer who plays as a wicketkeeper-batter for the Indian national cricket team in all formats and represents the Delhi cricket team at domestic level. Pant is also the captain of Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League and works closely with Australia-born coach Ricky Ponting who is the head coach of the franchise.

Because of his aggressive and frivolous mindset to bat, Pant’s batting style resembles to that of former Australian wicketkeeper-batter Adam Gilchrist. The Indian batter has faced his own share of criticism and rage in public, including the ones coming from pundits who strongly believe that Pant needs to assess the situation first and bat accordingly. But with his attacking brand of cricket, Pant has won India many matches single-handedly.

Rishabh Pant got his opportunity to play Test cricket a couple of years after having a mere presence in the white-ball squad. He was handed Test debut during the third Test against England in 2018 after Dinesh Karthik suffered a finger injury. It was in the final Test at The Oval where Pant garnered attention for his maiden Test hundred (114) and dogged resistance in a 204-run partnership with KL Rahul (149).

Since then Pant has played numerous awe-inspiring Test innings and has scored five of his international hundreds in overseas conditions. In July 2022, Pant scored a scintillating hundred - 146 in 111 balls - against England in the rescheduled fifth Test and thus became the fastest Indian wicketkeeper-batter to reach the three-figure mark in 89 balls. MS Dhoni held the record for 17 years after scoring his Test century in 93 balls against Pakistan in Faisalabad in 2006.

Rishabh Pant has played 27 ODI matches for India and scored 840 runs in 24 innings at an average of 36.52. Pant scored his maiden ODI century against England in the decisive match of the series in Manchester. He scored an unbeaten 125 in 113 balls, laced with 16 boundaries and a couple of sixes, and was involved in a 133-run stand with Hardik Pandya to guide India past the 260-run mark.

Pant has scored 961 runs in 52 T20I innings at a strike rate of 127.62 with three 50-plus scores. Pant is yet to reach three-digit figures in T20 Internationals although he has one in IPL - 128* vs SRH in 2018.
