Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was seen having fun on the field on the penultimate day of the Brisbane test. The talented cricket was joyful throughout the day and kept the team in high spirits.
The ongoing series has been a tense affair as the both the teams are battling it out hard. Stakes are also very high in the final test as the series is evenly poised at 1-1. However, this did not seem to affect the mood of Rishabh Pant and other Indian cricketers.
Pant was seen constantly cheering up the bowlers and joking with other players in the slip cordon. Rohit Sharma also looked in great spirit throughout the day on Monday. It is very interesting to see a visiting team being so cool at Australa.
The scenes doesn’t occur normally and credit to this Indian team for fighting it out. Generally teams visiting Australia will get dominated towards the end of the series, especially if they are playing at Gabba.
But this Indian team looks so calm and Pant has a major role in it. His high spirits have rubbed over to his teammates as Indian team looks to be enjoying their cricket. Despite the long list of injuries, India have managed to put on a third string bowling attack. They still managed to compete with Australia at Brisbane.

Meanwhile, the match has been evenly poised with only final day’s play remaining. The visitors clawed their way back into test match after yet another stellar performances by Indian bowling unit.
Mohammad Siraj took his maiden five wicket haul, Shardul Thakur got another 4 wickets as Australia bundled out for 294. On the other hand, the match is still even after rain gods made their presence felt. India still need 324 runs to win the match while Australia will look to pick out 10 wickets on the final day.
Rain is still forecasted on the final day at Brisbane but it will be a bad way to finish a series with such high quality cricket. India could retain the trophy if they can draw this match but the hosts needs to win this match to lift Border Gavaskar trophy after 6 years.
