Rishabh Pant opens batting for India, netizens flood social media with reactions


The second ODI match between India and West Indies threw up a big upset when Rishabh pants accompanied pattern rohit sharma to start the Indian innings after the West Indies sent India to bat after winning the toss.

Starting innings with Pant is something that came straight out of left field and might have caught the West Indies off guard, as they surely didn’t expect him to leave the arena so early.

However, Pant’s stay would be quite short, as he was undone by the added pace of Odean Smith. Smith’s extra pace rushed him into the shot and he hit it high and behind the square on the sideline. Holder ran to his left from mid-wicket and took the catch as Pant departed back to the shack scoring just 18 runs on 34 balls.

Even fans on social media were taken aback and a flood of posts flooded the internet as Pant went on the attack. Here are some of them:
