Rishabh PANTS TEST RECORD – PANTS vs THE REST: The trio of Gilchrist, Sangakkara and Dhoni became legends with their sensational show.
Here’s a look at all those legends, including Rishabh Pant’s willow talk in their first 31 Test matches.
Most RUNS after 31 games: Of the four players, Sangakkara had amassed the most. The former Sri Lankan captain scored 2211 points in his first 31 matches.
Gilchrist comes second with 2160 runs while Pant has a Test career of 2066 runs so far. Dhoni has the fewest among the four players with 1,587 runs.
Most centuries after 31 games: When it comes to centuries, Pant is second on the list with five tons. Gilchrist tops the list with six centuries. Sangakkara and Dhoni have four and one ton respectively.
What’s so SPECIAL about PANT? There is something very interesting to note about the hundreds of Pant.
- Of the five hundred he scored, four of them came on foreign soil.
- There was a time when scoring a hundred in SENA was considered a big thing, but Pant has made it a habit in his short career so far.
- He scored his first cent in the Oval against England. He also has a brilliant ton in Sydney, Cape Town and the latest in Edgbaston.

However, it is worth noting that Pant is still playing his 31st Test (second sleeve from left). He could even topple Gilchrist for maximum runs scored on 31 tests if he scores another 94 runs in second down.

While the comparison may be too early, it’s worth noting the numbers and the kind of impact he has on the game.
To be fair, the 24-year-old has all the ingredients to become one of the greatest of all time.
