Former England skipper Michael Vaughan lauded Indian wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant for his incredible knock against Sri Lanka on Day 1 of the first Test at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium in Mohali on Friday.

Pant joined forces with Shreyas Iyer after Hanuma Vihari, who scored 58 from 128 balls departed to Vishwa Fernando in the 47th over. Pant and Iyer build their innings playing some spectacular shots against the Sri Lankan bowlers.

Sri Lanka all-rounder Dhananjaya de Silva broke the partnership of the former Delhi Capitals pair as he sent Iyer packing back to the dressing room by trapping him leg-before the wicket. However, Iyer’s dismissal didn’t stop a rampant Pant from playing a vintage knock.
