Rishabh Pant Gets His Own Song From Bharat Army

Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant had previously hit the news because of his cheeky behind-the-stumps lines. However he made the headlines on Friday because of totally cricketing issue.

Pant turned the tables on the hosts at Sydney Cricket Ground in style as he slammed his second Test century of his career. His 150-plus score made him the first Indian wicketkeeper to score a century Down Under.

Because of Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 193, India declared their first innings for 622/7. Pant remained not out on 159, which is 10 runs runs of South Africa’s AB de Villiers. The Proteas wicketkeeper’s 169 is the highest score by a foreign keeper in Australia.

Australia batted for 10 overs and scored 24 runs without any damage. They still need to score 423 runs to avoid the follow-on.

Indian fans gave it back in style

In the previous Tests, Pant had taunted the Australian batsmen from behind the stumps. His banter with his Aussie counterpart Tim Paine during the third Test at Melbourne became the highlight of the series.

Paine made a jibe at Pant for being dropped from the ODI side. He advised Pant to extend his holidays, invited Pant to his house and asked if he wanted to babysit his kids.

Later both the teams met officially in the Australian Prime Minister’s residence. There Pant posed with Paine’s wife Bonnie Paine. In the photo Pant was seen holding on of Paine’s kids in his arms. This indicated that he took the challenge and was indeed babysitting the Aussie captain’s children.

On the other hand the Australian fans took a dig at their Indian counterparts asking for their visas in the MCG Test. The Bharat Army, a group of fans who have come to cheer for Kohli and Co., gave it back in a respectful manner.

They composed a song based on the 21-year-old Rishabh Pant. During the second day at Sydney Test, the Bharat Army was seen singing the song. They sang:

He’ll hit you for a six;

He’ll babysit your kids;

We’ve got Rishabh Pant!

We’ve got Rishabh Pant!
