Rishabh Pant is a maverick of a character and comes with the ability to both turn games on its head with his power-hitting and entertain teammates and fans alike.
The Delhi-born wicketkeeper-batsman is known for his “constant chatter” - as described by former Australian cricketers-turned-commentators Shane Warne and Mark Waugh - from behind the stumps and he gave another demonstration of the same during Day 4 of the fourth and final Test in Brisbane.
In the 56th over of Australia's second innings, Pant was speaking with spinner Washington Sundar and asked him to spin a web around the Australian batsmen, just like the web-slinging Spiderman.
During the chat, he started singing the Hindi version of the “Spiderman, Spiderman” theme song and the audio from the stump mike went viral on social media.
Australian skipper Tim Paine, with whom Pant shares and interesting rivalry, was batting with the score at 196/5, leading India by 229 runs. Here is a look at the hilarious incident:
On Day 4 of the Gabba Test, Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur took five and four wickets respectively as India bowled out Australia for 294, with a target of 328 to chase on the fifth and final day to win the match and the series, currently tied at 1-1.
