“Best I’ve Ever Seen In Test Cricket”: AB de Villiers’ Massive Praise For India Duo

Pant and Jadeja went on to build a 222 runs partnership.

Team India are currently in a comfortable position in the ongoing rescheduled fifth Test against England in Edgbaston. This is mainly due to the spirited fightback led by Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja on Day 1 of the match. India were 98/5 in the first 30 overs. It was then Jadeja and Pant’s escalated double barrelled firing which led to a 222-run stand for the sixth wicket. Pant eventually scored 146 while Jadeja played a knock of 104. Former South Africa skipper AB de Villiers on Monday praised the duo for their performance.

“Haven’t been home and missed most of the Cricket action. Finished watching the highlights now. That counterattack partnership from @RishabhPant17 and @imjadeja is right up there with the best I’ve ever seen in Test Cricket,”
