Pant was out after scoring 97 runs. His innings included 12 fours and 3 sixes. Rishabh hit a half-century off 65 balls, which included 5 fours and 3 sixes.
However, it was found in the scan that Rishabh Pant has no fracture. He was in severe pain, but on the fifth day Rishabh Pant came out to bat.
During Australia’s second innings, Wriddhiman Saha was in charge of wicketkeeping in place of Pant. According to cricket rules, if a wicket-keeper gets injured during batting or wicket-keeping, then he can replace his fellow wicket-keeper for wicket-keeping only.
