Rishabh Pant has become the toast of Indian cricket lovers after a scintillating performance in the third ODI against England on Sunday. He was named ‘Player of the Match’ for his brilliant unbeaten century that helped India beat England by five wickets at Old Trafford in Manchester and seal the series 2-1. Coming in to bat with India in trouble at 21/2, Pant hit 125* to help India chase down the 260-run target with just under eight overs to spare.
Now, Pant has posted two images of him on social media with a caption quoting a famous dialogue from web series ‘Mirzapur’. The post and the images are full of swag.

“Aur hum ek naya niyam add kar rahe hain, Mirzapur ki gaddi pe baithne wala kabhi bhi niyam badal sakta hai – Munna Bhaiya,” Pant wrote.
In the series decider, Hardik Pandya‘s brilliant display with the ball saw India bowl England out for 259. The all-rounder returned with figures of 4/24.
But India were in trouble early as openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma were dismissed within the first five overs.
With India reeling at 72/4, Pant and Hardik stitched together a brilliant 133-run partnership to rescue their team and take them to a commanding position.
After Hardik fell for 71, Pant upped his own tempo and reached his century with Ravindra Jadeja at the crease with him.
In a hurry to finish the match off, Pant then hit five consecutive boundaries off David Willey in the 42nd over and then reverse-swept Joe Root off the first ball of the next over to take India home comfortably.
