A Piece for SportsCafe on Rishabh Pant: The Net big thing in Indian cricket! It is a special feat indeed when someone breaks a record that stood for almost three decades. However, it becomes even more special when a 19-year old player taking his first strides at the big stage rewrites the history books to scribble down his name for the time that lie ahead.On Tuesday, it was 19-year old Rishabh Pant who broke a 28-year old record as he scored the fastest ever hundred by an Indian in first-class cricket in just 48 balls against Jharkhand in a Ranji Trophy match. It turned out to be just another feather in his cap in this already successful season for him in which he has scored 799 runs in 7 matches averaging a staggering 133.16 with the bat and that too at a strike rate of 113.17. Scores of 146, 308, 24, 9, 60, 117 and 135 speak immensely about his consistency and maturity at this young age. Pant’s story may sound like an overnight success story when reading from this Ranji season. However, his journey building up to this grueling tournament wasn’t as easy as it looks right now.
