Indian wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant played a marvellous knock against England on Sunday evening as he scored 125 off 113 to lead India to the win. The highlight of his performance came against David Willey in the 42nd over, when he hit the Englishman for five consecutive boundaries.

Pant made a comeback after going back for a duck in the previous ODI against England. However, his century on Sunday came at a crucial time for the Men in Blue, who had lost four wickets within the first 16 overs, and chances of victory looked bleak for them.

The 24-year-old hit 16 boundaries in total in his innings against England. However, David Willey received the special treatment, who conceded five successive boundaries by the batter. This was also Pant’s first ODI century, which he completed with much success and vigour.

Pant hit Willey for his first boundary in the 42nd over when the latter made a slow delivery. In the next ball, the Indian hit Willey through the square leg using a pull, who had opted for a bouncer. 

Watch all of his boundaries here:

Willey decided to come back with a half volley, which Pant hit with relative ease, striking another four. In the fourth and fifth balls, Willey tried another short delivery and a half volley, which the Indian batter blasted across the boundary line, recording five consecutive 4.

Apart from Pant’s heroics with the bat, Indian cricket fans also witnessed Hardik Pandiya’s astounding performance with the ball in Manchester. The Indian all-rounder recorded his career best ODI figure of 4/24, dismissing Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone.

The victory over England on Sunday helped India to win the ODI series 2-1, after winning the opener and losing the next. The Men in Blue will now fly off to face West Indies in their next tour.
