“Better Love Story Than Twilight,” tweeted Virender Sehwag in response to Rishabh Pant’s century against England in the series-deciding match.
Rishabh Pant’s game-winning performance in the third and final one-day international against England and India won him praise from the late Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag.
Rishabh Pant, the wicketkeeper-batter who played in the third and final ODI against England, was at the top of his form. scoring an unbeaten 125 off just 113 balls. Using 16 fours and 2 sixes in the process. with 47 balls remaining and five wickets in hand. Thanks to his first ODI century, Team India was able to overtake the 260-point mark. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma had both returned to the pavilion when he entered the batting order at 21/2, making this innings even more impressive.
Former Indian batter Virender Sehwag tweeted: “This is a greater love tale than Twilight as @RishabhPant17 is playing brilliantly in the final game of the series.” Sehwag noticed how Pant raises his level of performance in series-deciding games. A fantastic player put on an amazing performance, much aided by Hardik and Jadeja. #IndvsEng.”
Last match of a series and @RishabhPant17 playing brilliantly – this is a better love story than twilight.

It’s important to keep in mind that Pant often performs at his best in the series finale because all of his centuries in the longest format have already happened. With an outstanding 89 at the prestigious Gabba Test in 2020–2021. He also helped India defeat Pakistan 2-1 in the Border–Gavaskar Trophy.
India was 72/4 in pursuit of 260 in the third one-day international against England when Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant put up a 133-run partnership for the fifth wicket.
So Hardik lost his wicket after getting to 71, but Pant was still unbroken at 125. He also smashed five straight boundaries in the 42nd over of David Willey’s bowling. Which was a part of his century.
