It's said that if someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you're not sure if you can do it, just say yes, and learn how to do it later, and that's exactly what young Rishabh Pant did when he was handed his International Test debut at the Trent Bridge. He started making a record from the very second ball he faced in Test cricket and since then, there has been nothing that could stop him.
Following a magnificent IPL season, the Delhi cricketer shifted his gears forward and has never looked back since then. Being just 21 years of age, Pant has already created and broken many records, be it scoring his maiden century in England, or taking most catches in a single match, he has done it all.
Let's go through all the records Pant has made or broken till now:
. He was the first Indian to open a Test account with a six, which came on his Test debut against England at Trent Bridge. He got off the mark by deposing Adil Rashid's googly into the stands, straight back over the bowler's head.
. He became the first Indian keeper to score a Test century in England.
. He broke another record when he became the first Indian wicket-keeper to take 11 catches in a Test, equaling the record of AB de Villiers and England's Jack Russell.
. He also became the first Indian wicket-keeper to take 20 catches in a Test series, breaking MS Dhoni's record of 17 catches.
. With his unbeaten 159, he also became the 1st Indian wicket-keeper to score a Test century in Australia. The Delhi cricketer also holds the highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper overseas, when he scored an unbeaten 159 against Australia in Sydney, overcoming Dhoni's record of 148 against Pakistan.
. Pant became the first wicket-keeper with two Test hundreds as a 21-year-old.
