Pant’s hilarious words caught on stump mic

India and England locked horns with each other in the first match of the four-match Test series at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. The first Test is being played behind closed doors. Talking about the game, England won the toss and opted to open the blade first.


Jasprit Bumrah had a great chance to take a wicket early on in the innings. However, Pant dropped a catch behind the stumps as Rory Burns was gifted a life. He added a 63-run stand with Dominic Sibley before he was dismissed for 33. Ravichandran Ashwin bowled a superb delivery to get rid of him.

Bumrah somehow found a way to get his first Test wicket in Indian soil by dismissing Daniel Lawrence for a duck. England skipper Joe Root and Sibley took India’s bowling attack to the cleaners by adding a massive 200-run stand for the third wicket.

Pant’s words caught on camera

During the run-stand, while England were batting on 178/2 in the 70th over, Washington Sundar was brought into the attack by Virat Kohli. Meanwhile, Pant who is very good for his catchy words behind the stumps decided to come up with new words this time around.

“Mera naam hai Washington, Mereko jana hai DC” (Translation: My name is Washington. I want to go to DC). Interestingly, the commentators didn’t take notice of this but the fans took notice of this and made it viral all over social media

Joe Root went on to score a marvellous 20th Test century in his 100th Test match. He is in superb form at the form. Earlier, he struck a magnificent 228 against Sri Lanka in the first Test match. He continued his good form with the bat by scoring 186 in the second Test against the same opposition in Galle.

Now, he is leading the batting attack from the front against India. Dominic Sibley scored 87 and was dismissed leg before wicket off Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling as England ended the opening day with 258/3. Joe Root is batting on 128 including 14 fours and a six.
