The normally calm Dravid showed full range of emotions as Pant scored his 5th Test ton | Twitter/GettyIndia wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant proved to be the star of India’s rebuilding process in their first innings of the ongoing fifth Test after they were put in to bat by England captain Ben Stokes who won the toss and chose to bowl at Edgbaston on July 1.

England bowlers had the upper hand in the first session as overcast conditions and then rain helped James Anderson and Matthew Potts get movement in the air and off the pitch. Anderson accounted for three wickets including both the openers in Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara and then bounced out Shreyas Iyer.

Matthew Potts, on the other hand, first removed Hanuma Vihari and then got the big fish in Virat Kohli leaving India 98/5. Then Rishabh Pant took charge and Ravindra Jadeja provided brilliant support to the youngster.

Pant took on every England bowler and even hit Jack Leach out of the attack. He made 146 off 111 balls with 19 fours and 4 sixes to his name, before he fell to Joe Root, with India’s score on 320/6. He and Jadeja, who also scored his half-century, added 222 runs for the sixth wicket, rescuing India from a precarious situation.

When Rishabh Pant got to his hundred off 89 balls, the entire Indian squad came out to the balcony praising him, however, what was surprising to see was the huge, over-the-top reaction from the usually calm and collected Rahul Dravid.

He roared up in the excitement and clapped wildly for Rishabh Pant and cameras captured his whole range of emotions.
