Swashbuckling wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant had unleashed havoc on Day one of the first Test between India and Sri Lanka at Mohali. However, he fell for 96 off 97 balls after fast bowler Suranga Lakmal bowled him, and with that, he was dismissed in his 90s fourth time in Test cricket at home.

India’s wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant had been stupendous on Day 1 of the first Test match between India and Sri Lanka, held in Mohali. Pant started slowly, taking 75 balls to reach his half-century, but changed gears from there on. He even took 22 off a Lasith Embuldeniya over, and continued the carnage until Suranga Lakmal came back with the second new ball in the 81st over, and cleaned him up.

Pant departed after scoring 96 off 97 balls, which included nine fours and four sixes. This was the fourth time Pant fell in the 90s at home in Test cricket. It is worth a mention that Sachin Tendulkar had fell in the 90s on six occasions at home in Tests.

At stumps, India reached 357/6, with Ravindra Jadeja batting on 45, along with Ravichandran Ashwin on 10.

Here's how Twitterati reacted after Pant's dismissal:
