Rishabh Pant’s entertaining century at Edgbaston versus England on Saturday will be remembered for a long time by anyone, his fans or critics. Rishabh Pant now has two Test tons in England, one each in South Africa and Australia; in comparison, all other Indian wicket-keepers have 3 Test hundreds combined outside Asia!
Rishabh Pant Played A Stunning Knock
This knock – which helped India go from a perhaps below 200 total to over 300 – gave plenty of happy, cheerful moments to the fans in the stadium and those watching it on digitals.
However, there was one person, renowned Twitter personality – Sri Lankan Daniel Alexander, who perhaps would have been shrieking in discomfort and heartache with every single boundary and six Rishabh Pant stroked.

He made his happiness clear when he applauded the efforts of Joe Root after the off-spinner dismissed Pant. Pant had clattered 146 runs off 110 balls and was went for another big hit to Root, however, it proved one too many as the ball turned off the surface and Pant edged it to Zak Crawley at first slip ending an enthralling innings.
Daniel Alexander gets trolled:
After Pant’s dismissal, Daniel Alexander went to the BCCI’s Twitter handle and lauded Joe Root in the comment section of BCCI’s update of Pant’s wicket.
Here, look at Daniel’s comment:

This sparked a huge uproar among Indian fans as they mercilessly trolled Daniel Alexander for his sadistic take. Fans reminded Daniel that Sri Lanka was bowled out for 113 runs earlier in the day vs Australia in Galle, and that Pant had made a whole 33 runs more than what the entire Lankan team managed.
Here are some of the best tweets trolled Daniel:
Let’s all laugh at Srilanka gave mighty 5 runs as target to chase for Australia

23 year old smashes 147 against a lethal bowling attack and a 35 year old clown from SL is sitting and clapping at his wicket out of hatred. Have some shame man.
