Adam Gilchrist praised Rishabh Pant and called him a true match winner. He took to his Twitter and said that, "It’s not just about how many you get, but also when you get them. If you can somehow sync the first with the second, when the team needs it most, you’re a true match winner."
Rishabh Pant played one of the the best Test knocks seen in the recent times. He scored 101 in a very less time against England in the ongoing fourth Test in Ahmedabad. Pant added 113 runs with Washington Sundar for the seventh wicket, while scoring his third Test ton and second against England.
Here is the tweet made by Gilchrist.
