Internet Desk: Delhi’s star wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was just removed from his state captaincy a week back, but he showed his capability again today after the power hitter scored a magnificent hundred today in just 32 deliveries in a North Zone game against Himachal Pradesh.

Pant thumped the Himachal bowlers through all parts of the ground to hand his side a 10-wicket win in a Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy game.

Pant remained unbeaten on 116 off 38 balls. His breathtaking knock comprised 12 sixes and eight fours as Delhi raced to the 145-run target in 11.4 overs.

Gautam Gambhir was left a mere spectator at the other end with 30 off 33 balls.

His brutal innings was also the second fastest hundred in T20s, only behind Chris Gayle, who hammered 100 off 30 balls against Pune Warriors in the 2013 Indian Premier League.

The southpaw also surpassed Rohit Sharma, who hit a 35- ball hundred against Sri Lanka in T20 International at Indore last month.

Pant’s performance left a handful of spectators at the Feroz Shah Kotla awestruck, including Yuvraj Singh, who witnessed a special knock by another left-hander before taking the field for Punjab.

“Just witnessed some outstanding hitting by @RishabPant777 scintillating ton,” tweeted Yuvraj.

For Delhi, it was their third win in four matches with their last league match to be played against Services on Tuesday.

Pant has been in ominous touch in the zonal event and had hammered 51 off 33 balls in the previous match against Jammu and Kashmir.
