Ind vs SL Test Match Rishabh Pant breaks 40 year Record of Kapil Dev

The 2nd Test between India and Sri Lanka is being played in Bangalore. India, who were bowled out for 252 in the first innings of the day-night Test, were bowled out for 109 by Sri Lanka.

Bumrah bowled immensely and took 5 wickets. Bumrah, who has taken 5 wickets in an innings for the 8th time in a Test match, will take 5 wickets in an innings in a Test match in India.

Wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant, who played in action, crossed the 50 runs. He hit 7 fours and 2 sixes in 28 balls and hit a half-century. Kapil Dev thus broke the 40-year-old record.

Kapil Dev was the fastest Indian to score a half-century in Test cricket. During the Test against Pakistan in Karachi in December 1982, Kapil Dev hit a half-century off 30 balls. Rishabh Pant has now surpassed Kapil Dev’s record of half a century off fewer balls.

Afridi hit 50 off 26 balls in 2005, the lowest number of balls hit in India. Rishabh Pant missed the record in just 2 balls.
