If Rishabh Pant is exhausted of living in Mahendra Singh Dhoni's shadow, the 20-year-old left-hander did a good job of venting any frustration with a blistering century in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday. Pant left the field with his head held high, however, having destroyed arguably the tournament's best bowling attack to register the highest IPL score by an Indian player. "I don't know if it's my best knock but till now it's one of my best", he said. Adding a bit of context - Pant who was not included in India's T20 squad for England and Ireland tour announced two days earlier, made a telling statement and in all probability he has not only knocked on the doors of selection; he has knocked it down with a loud thud.

It was a must-win game for the Delhi Daredevils as they looked to avenge their defeat against Sunrisers in Hyderabad in their previous game.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Pant is not part of any of the senior India teams that will tour England and play a one-off Test against Afghanistan. They are young there's no hurry. "How many times does he keep doing that?" Delhi got off to a bad start as they lost both the openers Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy off consecutive deliveries in the 4th over.

"Yes T20 is different, opportunities are lot lesser".

Defending the selectors decision, Ganguly said: "At the present moment M.S. Dhoni is there. Then you have Dinesh Karthik who I thought deserves a chance in the national side especially after what he did against Sri Lanka", the former skipper said. "Dinesh deserves more than anybody else because I think he is a very very good player".

"I saw McCullum knock from the other end in the first game of IPL. But to see Rishabh Pant play yesterday was phenomenal", Ganguly said.

"Delhi were struggling, they had lost few wickets and he was involved in a couple of run outs".

SH chased the target with utmost ease, thanks to Shikhar Dhawan's 50-ball 92.
