But then the tide changed, the momentum shifted, and the game turned on its head. Rishabh Pant and Washington Sundar joined hands, and both the young left-handers took on the England bowlers. While Sundar kept tiring the bowlers by playing a classic Test match knock. Pant, from the other end, was taking on the attack. The Delhi lad who has this knack of deciding a Test with his batting did the same. Pant scored a supreme century and Washington showed his mettle as well. The pair added 113, a stand that saw India take the lead not just on the scorecard but also in the larger context of the game. Pant’s majestic innings came to an end but Washington carried his merry way. He reached his fifty and with Axar they have also extended their team’s lead and tired the tourists out on a hot, hot day.
