India vs Australia: WATCH - Rishabh Pant's Howl Behind the Stumps Has Fans in Splits

Rishabh Pant's constant verbal jabs can be jarring to some and endearing to others but what remains out of the question is the fact that it can often lead to some hilarious moments in the middle of a Test match.

India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant is known to be quite vocal behind the stumps, a charecterestic that is not uncommon for players whose job it is to man the area behind the wickets. The youngster’s constant verbal jabs can be jarring to some and endearing to others but what remains out of the question is the fact that it can often lead to some hilarious moments in the middle of a Test match. Indeed, never was this more evident than on the first day of the fourth and final Test match against Australia at the Gabba in Brisbane on Friday (January 15).

Pant has been involved in a constant back-and-forth throughout the series with Australia’s Matthew Wade, who as a keeper himself is no stranger to the act of winding up batsmen from behind the stumps.

Yet Pant took things to another level on Day 1 as, after Wade played a shot off Washington Sundar and ran a single, Pant let out what can only be described as a howl of glee that had his teammates amused.

Fans on social media also saw the funny side of Pant’s moment of madness. Check out some of the best reactions below.

Meanwhile, Australia’s first innings folded for 369 on the second day of fourth and final Test against India on Saturday.

The lunch break was taken after the fall of last Australian wicket in the extended opening session. The hosts had resumed at 274 for five.

The 39-run partnership for the ninth wicket between Nathan Lyon (24) and Mitchell Starc (20 not out) hurt India.
