Ind vs Eng: Rishabh Pant left Freddie Flintoff and Michael Vaughn completely awestruck with his batting in the 4th test. Pant completed his century in an innings that included an amazing jaw-dropping reverse sweep against James Anderson.

Pant, 23, stole the spotlight with his extraordinary century which marked his third in Test format. The highlight of the sturdy century was the bold reverse sweep against Anderson which made Flintoff film his television and upload it on Twitter.

It just was not Flintoff who was struck by Pant’s performance, but the former England captain, and Ashes winner, Michael Vaughan, was left equally overwhelmed by Pant’s performance at the crease.

This is what Vaughan tweeted:
