The visitors India have taken total control of the fourth and final Test in Sydney. At first it was Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara who frustrated the Aussies with his style of play.
Later wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant joined him on the action in the second day. The duo added 89 runs for the sixth wicket which deflated the hosts even more.
Meanwhile the wicketkeeper hit the news for some different reason too. During their onslaught, relaxed Pant showed off his acrobatic moves during the drinks break.
It was the first session of the second day. The partnership of Pant and Pujara was flourishing well. Because of the scorching heat, a short drinks break was taken.
In the meantime Pant decided to show his acrobatic moves. He laid on the ground with his batting pads on and performed a kick-up to lift himself on his feet. The perfect acrobatic move left everyone in awe.
The official Twitter handle of Cricket Australia was quick to post the video in their site. They have been doing this all through the series for the avid followers of the game.

Rishabh Pant showed his other side of batting in this game. He is always known for his aggressive style. But in this game he showed composure and stayed longer in the crease.
When he came to the crease, the score read 329/5, and the Aussies had a chance to bounce back in the game. But Pant didn’t attack from the word go. Rather he spent some time in the middle.
He concentrated on rotating the strike with Pujara, who was batting exceptionally well. At the end Pujara ended his innings on 193 while Pant remained not out on 159.
India declared their innings on 622/7, with Jadeja also scoring 81. They had 10 overs left in the day to bowl to Australia. The Kangaroos safely played out the day and scored 24 runs without any loss of wicket.
