Pant became India’s number one wicketkeeper, broke Dhoni’s 14-year-old record

Rishabh Pant not only became the hero of the Brisbane Test by playing an unbeaten inning of 89 runs but also achieved huge personal achievement. Rishabh Pant has become the Indian wicket-keeper to touch 1000 runs in the lowest innings in Test cricket. In this case, he left behind the former captain of the Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Rishabh Pant completed 1000 runs in the 27th innings of the 16th Test. Mahendra Singh made this achievement in his 32nd innings of the 20th Test. Dhoni completed his 1000 runs in a Test match played at the Oval in England in August 2007. At number three in this list is veteran Indian wicketkeeper Farooq Engineer. Farukh Engineer had touched the figure of one thousand test runs in 36 innings.

Overall, the record of making the fastest 1000 Test runs is in the name of South African wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock. Quinton Dickock achieved this feat in just 21 innings. In this case, none of India’s wicketkeepers are in the top five.

Rishabh Pant also holds the record for 50 wickets (catch and wicketkeeping) in the lowest innings in Test cricket. He had completed fifty victims behind the wicket in the 22nd innings of 11 Tests.

Rishabh Pant made this feat during India’s second innings on the fifth day of the Brisbane Test. He went on to bat at number five in the second innings and was unbeaten at the end. He opened his account by taking 2 runs off the ball of Pat Cummins and took this record in his name.

Shubman Gill breaks Sunil Gavaskar’s record: In the Brisbane Test, Shubman Gill broke a Sunil Gavaskar record. He became the youngest Indian opener to score a half-century in Shubman’s fourth innings. He broke the 50-year-old record of former Indian cricket team captain and opener Sunil Gavaskar. Shubhaman is 21 years and 133 days old. Gavaskar achieved this feat at the age of 21 years and 243 days. Sunil Gavaskar scored a half-century in the Test match played in the Port of Spain against the West Indies in 1970.
