The entire cricket fraternity is in awe of the 23-year-old Rishabh Pant, who might have just played the shot of the year 2021 during his brilliant, series-defining knock of 101 off 118 balls against England on the second day of the final Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Of course! I am talking about the reverse-lap that Rishabh Pant hit off James Anderson- Yes! JAMES ANDERSON– the same bowler who will go down in history as one of the greatest fast bowlers to have ever played this game- over the slip cordon for a boundary.

Rishabh had made his intentions pretty clear to James Anderson as soon as he had come into the attack with the new cherry in his hand.

The very first ball that Anderson bowled, Rishabh Pant danced down the track and smashed the fast bowler down the ground for a boundary. He then backed it up with a swat past extra-cover for a boundary on the very next delivery.

But the moment of the day or the Test match or maybe the moment of the year came in the next over of James Anderson when the 23-year-old got on one knee and nonchalantly reverse-paddled the veteran pacer over the slip cordon for a boundary.

Anderson eventually had his man in his next over but not before Rishabh Pant had given us yet another glimpse of his outrageous talent; one that would stay with all those who watched it live, forever.
