Watch: Rishabh Pant Falls To Jack Leach After Another Crucial Knock

Indian wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant was dismissed by England off-spinner, Jack Leach, in the third innings on Day 4 of the fifth and final Test between the two sides in Edgbaston.

Pant, who had scored 146 in the first innings and helped India set a huge total, was once again the most assured batter. He brought up his fifty off Stuart Broad in the first session of the day.

However, he was losing wickets at the other end as Cheteshwar Pujara and Shreyas Iyer fell to poor shots. After holding himself back for a long while, Pant decided to finally go after Leach.

In the first innings, Pant had taken the left-arm spinner to the cleaners but Leach hit back in the third. The 24-year-old Pant attempted a reverse sweep but got a thick edge that was gobbled up by Joe Root at first slip.
