Twitter Reactions: Rishabh Pant becomes first Asian wicket-keeper to score a Test century in Australia

Posted On / /

Rishabh Pant scored his maiden century in Australia and his second in Test cricket on Friday in the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

By reaching the three-figure mark, Pant has now become now the only Asian to have scored a century on Australia soil and he did it in style.

Pant, who is touring Australia for the first time with the senior squad, scored a boundary off Marnus Labuschagne to complete his hundred in 137 deliveries.

With this century at the SCG, Pant has also become the second highest scorer in the ongoing series in Australia. He overtook Virat Kohli’s 282 runs and only trails Cheteshwar Pujara now, who leads with 521 runs.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Rishabh Pant’s ton at SCG:
