India clinch cricket series win against England

Following wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant's match-winning knock, many Indian cricketers took to social media to heap praises on the heroics of the star batter in Manchester.

Rishabh Pant's unbeaten 125* and his 133-run partnership with Hardik Pandya helped India chase down 260 in the final ODI of three-match series at Manchester. England was bundled out for 259 thanks to some brilliant spells from likes of Hardik Pandya (4/24) and Yuzvendra Chahal (3/60). Jos Buttler (60), Jason Roy (41) and Moeen Ali (34) played some crucial knocks for the hosts.

Chasing 260, Reece Topley destroyed India's top order and had them at 72/4, but then Pandya-Pant stitched a match-winning stand of 133 runs.
"Congratulations Team India on winning both the ODI and T20I series in England. @RishabhPant17 coming of age, @Jaspritbumrah93's consistency, @hardikpandya7 in his elements and @ImRo45's leadership have been outstanding throughout the white ball matches #EngvsInd," said BCCI Secretary Jay Shah in a tweet.

"Super performance in england ..not easy in their country ..2-2 test .win in T20 and one days..well done dravid ,rohit sharma,ravi shastri,virat kohli @bcci ..pant just is pandu ..," BCCI president Sourav Ganguly tweeted.

Legendary batters Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh also praised Pant's superb knock.

"Last match of a series and @RishabhPant17 playing brilliantly - this is a better love story than twilight. Incredible innings from an incredible player - with great support from Hardik and Jadeja. #IndvsEng," tweeted Sehwag.

"Looks like the 45 minute conversation made sense !! Well played @RishabhPant17 that's how you pace your innings @hardikpandya7 great to watch #indiavseng," tweeted Yuvraj.

Suresh Raina also took to Twitter and congratulated Pant for his century, tweeting, "Heartiest congratulations @RishabhPant17 bro on your ODI century. You were fantastic throughout, what a player #INDvENG."
