India vs England 5th Test: Rishabh Pant reveals the secret behind his super knock at Edgbaston

Rishabh Pant's stunning 146 was the cornerstone of India's remarkable recovery on Day 1 of the rescheduled fifth Test

After putting India back on track in the Edgbaston Test, explosive wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant revealed that he tried to disturb the line and length of English bowlers with his unorthodox power-hitting on Day 1.

After the end of Day 1 play at Edgbaston, Pant said, "I don't try to play unidimensional, rather I try out various shots -- sometimes I step out, or play on the backfoot. I keep on using the crease well. It's about disturbing the bowler mentally and things happen. It's not pre-planned. I just focus on what the bowler is trying to do."

Pant also revealed how he constructed his inning when India were tottering at 98-5.

"When you lose too many wickets early on, you have to give yourself more time. I just tried to stage a partnership with Jaddu Bhai and not lose a wicket before tea and it worked for us. (Coach) Rahul (Dravid) Bhai told me that I should play one ball at a time and not focus too much on other things," 24-year-old Pant elaborated.

During his 146-run knock, Pant completed his century in just 89 balls, which is the fastest hundred by an Indian wicketkeeper in Test history.
