Nottingham: Indian wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant is always an entertainer behind the stumps. Even today, he was relentless behind the stumps. Although the pacers stole the show, Pant, too, contributed his bit. He took three catches behind the stumps as Indian bowlers bowled England out for 183 runs.
The interesting moment arrived when Mohammed Siraj was bowling to the well-set Zack Crawley. The ball went past the bat and Pant appealed ferociously but to no vail as the umpire called it not-out. Now, watch the video and see how Rishabh Pant tries to convince captain Kohli to take a review. Take a look below:

We can make sense of Kohli’s scepticism as Pant’s previous DRS attempt was a fail and Kohli was in two minds whether to trust his wicket-keeper or not.
The Trent Bridge is India’s happy hunting ground as the last time India visited England – in 2018 – on a forgettable 4-1 tour, Trent Bridge was the only ground where India was able to save some honour.
Earlier in the match, Jasprit Bumrah picked 4 wickets while Shami, SHardul and Siraj picked 3, 2 and 1 wickets respectively. India looked in a commanding position at the end of Day 1.
Nonetheless, Virat Kohli’s men have the best chance of winning the series, according to many cricket experts as England are without 3-4 top players like Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes and also, Ben Stokes who has taken a break from international cricket.
