On a tough wicket, against the best bowling line-up in this season of the Indian Premier League, Rishabh Pant produced one of the greatest knocks in the tournament’s history on Thursday night. The Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers, who have been in phenomenal form, were smashed to all parts of the Feroz Shah Kotla as he went on to score his maiden IPL century.
Twitter couldn’t believe what the youngster had done to the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul and co. Here are some of the reactions!
Absolute carnage stuff from @RishabPant777 tonight!! An innings of 128* off just 63 deliveries is a treat to watch. Way to go Champion! ?????? @DelhiDaredevils #DDvSRH #IPL2018 pic.twitter.com/QsMEjWhePb

Ishan Kishan yesterday, and Rishab Pant today. India are spoilt for choices for T20 wicketkeeper-batsmen.

One handed sixes and hitting even good balls out of the park. This was as good an innings you will ever see in a T-20 match against the best bowling line up in the IPL, absolutely clean striking. Take a bow, Rishabh Pant #DDvSRH
