Rishabh Pant said before this series that he would respect England's bowlers more than any other unit anywhere else in the world. That comment did not exactly define this remarkable decision to charge down the wicket to Jimmy Anderson, hacking him over cover for three. Anderson had taken two wickets in two balls, including Virat Kohli, and beaten the bat of Pant the ball previous.
The Indian keeper-batsman decided for the umpteenth time in his blossoming career to not die wondering, running at one of the best bowlers ever who had emphatically found his rhythm. Having fallen from 97-0 to 112-4, Pant's natural game seems unconcerned when his team comes under pressure, his tendency to entertain always coming to the fore.
