There is a nerve wrenching Test match that is going on at The Gabba. The Test series is locked at 1-1. There is tension in both the camps, as the winner of the fourth Test at Brisbane will get hold of the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
But then, it seems as if the tension has not affected India’s wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant. Pant is a man who always likes to chat behind the stumps. He either indulges in some friendly banter with the batsman or is constantly seen shouting out the name of the bowler and encouraging him.
But this time, Rishabh Pant just seemed to be thoroughly enjoying himself on the field. The 23-year-old was seen singing the song ‘Spiderman Spiderman’ and that was clearly caught on the stump mic.

Test match set for an interesting finish
At the time of writing, Australia definitely has a slight advantage over the visitors at this point. The kangaroos have accumulated a lead of over 300. David Warner finally got some runs under his belt in the second innings at The Gabba. The left-hander seemed confident in his stay in the middle and scored 48 off 75 balls, and put on a crucial 89 run stand with Marcus Harris, who contributed a handy 38.
Australia’s batting bedrocks, Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith again scored some vital runs. While Labuschagne scored a fast 22 ball 25, Smith scored 55. Cameron Green and Tim Paine again frustrated the Indian bowlers. While Green scored a patient 37 off 90 deliveries, Paine scored a brisk 27.
It remains to be seen when Australia would declare, as the visitors are more than capable of springing up a surprise with the willow. If in the third Test, it was the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari who defied the Australian bowling attack, in the first innings of the fourth Test, Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur ripped apart the kangaroos.
Meanwhile, on a lighter note, it would definitely help if India has someone like Rishabh Pant, who can keep cool in a tense situation. The fifth and final Day holds all the answers as far as this tightly contested series is concerned.
