Rishabh Pant dictated the proceedings on Day 5 of the fourth and final Test against Australia in Brisbane as the young wicketkeeper played an unbeaten knock of 89 runs from 138 balls to help his side secure a famous three-wicket win. India completed the stiff 328-run chase with Pant hitting Josh Hazlewood for a crunching four towards the long-on region and Navdeep Saini enjoying the sight from the other end. With this win, Ajinkya Rahane-led Indian unit also secured the Border Gavaskar Trophy and won the four-match series 2-1.   

Pant came out to bat late in the second session, with the visitors still requiring 161 more to win the contest. However, soon after his arrival, the 23-year-old made his intentions clear as he ripped apart the Australian bowling attack led by Pat Cummins.

The 23-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman was picked player of the match for his brilliant knock, who termed the innings as the “biggest day of his life.”

“This is one of the biggest days of my life. The support the team has given me even when I was not playing has been incredible. It’s a dream come true. We’ve been practicing hard since the first Test. The team management always backs me and tells me you are a match-winner and you have to go out there and win and I am happy I did it today. It was a fifth-day pitch and the ball was turning,”Pant said right after the match.
