Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman is also impressed with the shot. He wrote, “What a incredible shot from @RishabhPant17 Looking forward to him bailing the team out this terrible situation just like he did in the last few Tests.”

“This is the new generation!! Absolutely fearless ! Reverse sweep or shot I don’t know what to call it ! But @RishabhPant17 hats off to you to hit a fast bowler like that ! Game on !! #IndiavsEnglandT20,” commented Yuvraj Singh.
