Rishabh Pant has been knocking on the door of a big IPL knock and he finally got it today, and that too against the best bowling line up in the IPL.
Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have had a strangle hold over the best batsmen in the IPL but today they were made to look like ordinary bowlers by one of the most special talents in the country.
Pant decimated the SRH bowling unit, toying with them all through and bringing up his 1st IPL hundred in no time.
Twitter went crazy after Pant’s knock, praising the youngster for his consistency of clearing the ropes.

Really special innings from Rishabh. Those were not bad balls from Bhuvi in the last over barring the last full toss, but Rishabh Pant is really special and I hope he is nurtured well. #DDvSRH

Can’t believe what I just saw! Still remember the 97 he scored against GL last year. Unbelievable hitting from @RishabPant777. Great going my boy. Keep it up. #DDvSRH #IPL2018 pic.twitter.com/AK3mpC29Bx

One handed sixes and hitting even good balls out of the park. This was as good an innings you will ever see in a T-20 match against the best bowling line up in the IPL, absolutely clean striking. Take a bow, Rishabh Pant #DDvSRH

Rishabh Pant has become the 31st batsman (13th Indian) in #IPL history to make a hundred!
