Rishabh Pant continued his fine run in the rescheduled 5th Test as he followed up his first-innings hundred with a solid fifty in the second innings against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham. Pant got to his fifty on Day 4 morning, taking his time, getting there in 76 deliveries.

Rishabh Pant broke the record for the highest total runs in a Test match by a visiting wicketkeeper. The India vice-captain went past Clyde Walcott's record for the West Indies from 1950 against England at Lord's. Walcott had scored 14 and 168 not out in the said Test.

Pant went past the tally when he got past 36 in the second innings on Day 4 morning. Pant has resumed on his overnight score of 30 not out after he had stitched a 50-run stand with stand-in opener Cheteshwar Pujara.

Pant also went past

MS Dhoni's tally of 151 runs from the Birmingham Test against England in 2011. The former India captain had scored 77 and 74 not out across two innings in a losing cause.

Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant also became the second Indian wicketkeeper batter after Farokh Engineer to score a hundred and a fifty in the same Test. Engineer had hit 121 and 66 against England in Mumbai in 1973.

Rishabh Pant was the star of India's batting show in the first innings as he tore into the England attack, hitting 146 from just 111 balls. Pant helped India recover from 98 for 5 as he stitched a 222-run stand with fellow centurion Ravindra Jadeja as India posted 416 runs in the first innings.

Pant kept going in the first session on Day 4 even after losing Cheteshwar Pujara for 66 and Shreyas Iyer for 19.
