The Indian cricket team pulled off a stunning 31-run win over Australia to register their first Test victory in 10 years. It was also first victory of Indian cricket team in Adelaide since 2003. There were many amazing and candid moments that took place during the match, however, the one that is winning everyone’s heart on social media is as amazing as it can get.
Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant took over commentary for an entire over during Day 5 of this thrilling match. Yes, no commentaries were made for an entire over as Rishabh Pant sledged Pat Cummins from behind the wickets and the video of the same has been making rounds on the internet.
The fans are loving the banter of Rishabh Pant from behind the stumps as he tried getting into the skin of Aussies with the attack of words. “Come on Pat, you’re not putting the bad ball away!” Rishabh Pant quipped during Ashwin’s over. “Tough to play here.” he added in order to unnerve Pontings.
Here, have a look at the video of the same :

Tim Paine's leadership is worse than Rahul Gandhi's.
Australia without Smith and Warner are weaker than Vijay Krishna Acharya's direction in Thugs Of Hindostan .
Rishabh Pant is a better troll behind the stumps than average bhakt on twitter.

Will the Commentators be paid for this particular over?
I think the 1 over % should go to the keeper. Multitasking!!
