(Video) Rishabh Pant obliges to the devil on his shoulder

Rishabh Pant was itching to break free and couldn’t help but cave in to the burning impulse to go up and over mid-off as England reduced India to a deplorable 127/7 on day one at The Oval. The connection was as tame as it could get, right from the toe end of the bat as he ballooned a dolly to Moeen Ali, who backpedalled to settle underneath. Although ‘my way or the highway’ is the mantra generally associated with the game-changer that is Pant, he might cop an earful here because India would have done with a bit of sensibility at the moment.
