India’s young wicketkeeper, Rishabh Pant, appeared to be in a cheerful mood on Day 1 of the ongoing fourth Test against Australia on Friday. The youngster was quite vocal behind the stumps, encouraging the bowlers on every given opportunity. Nevertheless, Pant also provided some comical relief to his teammates, especially to those standing in the slip.
During the final session of the day, the youngster did his best to convince the skipper Ajinkya Rahane to take a review, but instead managed to bring a smile, especially on vice-captain Rohit Sharma's face. Rohit just could not keep from having a laugh at Pant's antics behind the stumps.
T Natarajan, had beaten the outside edge of Tim Paine's bat in the 84th over and Rishabh Pant was the only one who went up for an appeal for a possible caught behind against the Aussie skipper.
Cricket Australia took to their official Twitter handle to share the video of the light moment that left the Indian slip cordon in splits.
"Rishabh Pant was heaps keen on this one but he was getting donuts from the cordon," the tweet read.
Earlier in the day, the Australian side won the toss and choose to bat at the Gabba.
Injury-ridden Indian side deployed four new faces in the final Test of the four-match series, handing out debuts to T Natarajan and Washington Sundar.
