Rishabh Pant an India star hit his maiden century in the format en route to his unbeaten knock of 125 runs which helped the Men in the Blue script a memorable five-wicket win in Manchester. Moments after Pant's big knock, former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh posted a “45-minute tweet’ which went viral and the India wicketkeeper-batter has finally responded to the social media post.
“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 after Pant scored his maiden ODI century.
The 24-year-old responded saying, "It did, indeed Yuvi pa."

"Hopefully I remember (this knock) for the rest of my life. I was focusing on one ball at a time when I was batting. When your team is under pressure and you bat like that .. something I aspire to do. I always enjoy playing in England, at the same time enjoy the atmosphere and the situation. The more you play the more experience you gain," Pant said after the win in Manchester. The five-wicket win helped India beat England in the ODI series. It also helped India surpass Babar Azam-led Pakistan side to take the third spot in the ICC ODI rankings
