Rishabh Pant had once again displayed nerves of steel during Day two of the fourth Test between India and England at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. He scored a century when India needed it the most amid the chaos of the collapsing batting order. Needless to say that his innings impressed the Indian fans and of course the cricketers as well. Many Indian players including Irfan Pathan, Wasim Jaffer lauded the young wicketkeeper for his innings. Now, Adam Gilchrist was also the one who lauded the Indian star on social media and called him a true match-winner.
