Watch: Pant sings ‘Spiderman, Spiderman’ song while keeping the wickets
Rishabh Pant usually makes the headlines for his playful activities on the cricket field. The wicketkeeper-batsman might not have scored much in the first innings of the fourth Test at The Gabba but he was a livewire on the cricket field.
The wicketkeeper took 4 good catches in Brisbane while also cheering up the bowlers with motivational words. During the overs, Pant was caught singing ‘Spiderman, Spiderman’ song and the video of the same went viral all over social media platforms.
The incident was witnessed during the 56th over of Australia’s innings when Indian bowlers were trying extremely hard to bundle out the opposition. During the overs, Pant was caught singing the song and that too pretty loudly. It was also caught on the stump mic.

Rishabh Pant managed to score just 23 in the first innings with the help of 2 fours. However, he has another opportunity to deliver the goods in the second innings of the Brisbane Test. Pant was the pick of the batsmen in the third Test match against Australia in Sydney.

Talking about the fourth Test, Australia were bowled out for 369 in the first innings. Marnus Labuschagne was the pick of the batsmen as he chipped in with his 5th Test century. He scored 108 while captain Tim Paine scored 50.
Washington Sundar, T Natarajan and Shardul Thakur had a dream debut at The Gabba by taking 3 wickets each. In reply to Australia’s total, India ended up scoring 336. Thakur scored 67 while Sundar scored 62. Josh Hazlewood was the pick of the bowlers for Australia as he took a fifer.
