Rishabh Pant and his love for playing unreal shots continue as he once again executed an outrageous reverse sweep shot. This time the bowler was Jofra Archer who is rated as one of the quickest bowlers in the world. However, Rishabh Pant still backed himself and played an unreal scoop shot that went sailing over the boundary rope for a six.
As expected Twitter unanimously saluted the audacity of Rishabh Pant who nailed a reverse sweep after India lost both KL Rahul and Virat Kohli in quick succession. Pant played a similar kind of shot in the Test series against James Anderson but that went only for a boundary. This time that rapid pace of Jofra Archer allowed Rishabh Pant to hit the stroke for a maximum.

Pant has just played the greatest shot that’s ever been played in cricket.

Rishabh Pant just reverse-lapped Jofra Archer for six, this is the greatest sport in the world

Meanwhile, apart from the Rishabh Pant reverse sweep shot, team India hasn’t had much to celebrate in the first T20I match against England. The hosts are currently reeling at 79 for 4 as Hardik Pandya and Shreyas Iyer are trying to take India to a respectable total. India will need a score of above 150 runs against the might of the England batting line-up. Pant will be disappointed as he failed to capitalize on his start and gifted his wicket away softly to Ben Stokes when he was all set.
