In the first of two test matches against Bangladesh, Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant has a remarkable record to his name.

Pant, who batted at position five, made a quick-fire 46 off 45 pitches to aid India's counterattack before being taken out by Mehidy Hasan.

Virat Kohli departed the crease after scoring only one run, bringing India's score to 48/3.

Rishabh Pant started playing aggressively right after Kohli was benched and quickly scored 46 runs

Additionally, Pant is the eighth Indian player to score 50 sixes in a Test match

In the longest version of the game, Virendra Sehwag, MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly, and Ravindra Jadeja have all struck 50 sixes.

In 2022, Pant will be India's top test batter

In his last seven test innings, he has scored 534 runs, including two hundreds and three fifty-sevens.

Rishabh Pant now has 2169 runs in 54 Test innings, with 10 fifties and 5 hundred to his name.
