It looks like the youngsters are taking over the field and setting one record after another. First Rashid Khan and now Rishabh Pant. It makes us all proud to think that the coming generation of sports is promising and is paving new records and setting high standards for us.
In the match between SRH and DD, wherein the crowds were cheering and howling for their beloved teams and hopes were shifting in favor for the all winning SRH, 20-year-old Rishabh Pant saves us all hope by gloriously making 128 runs! That is highest T20 score ever made and it makes us all think the potential this young man holds and what wonders he is capable of doing in the future. Although he tried his level best, DD still lost the match. But, it was definitely a day to remember and something that would be going down in history. He was against Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar and certainly gave them a hard time as well. He bagged 26 runs in one over against the latter and completely floored us all! Kumar later gave away 44 runs in two over to everyone’s surprise. Probably our young star had unnerved him.
We can all clearly see the spirit of cricket and the passion raging through his blood. Someone, as dedicated to the sport, is definitely needed on the team. I think it is safe to say that he has indeed impressed us to the level of Sachin Tendulkar, the legendary cricketer and someone who started off around the same age. Pant has been on the top for the most amount of fours scored in a game and is beating everyone up on the way to the orange cap. The highest probability is that he is going to win it and he deserves every bit of it. More power to young blood!
