Last week, the International Cricket Council (ICC) dedicated a special ‘Spider-Pant’ song to laud Pant for guiding India to a win against Australia in the fourth Test at the Gabba.
Pant was seen singing ‘spiderman-spiderman’ behind the stumps on the fourth day of the Test, and taking a cue from that, the ICC decided to dedicate an entire song to the wicket-keeper batsman.
Pant following his heroics in the fourth Test became the top-ranked wicket-keeper in the ICC batting list after attaining a career-best 13th position.
India beat Australia in their own den in the fourth and final Test to seal the series 2-1. India’s memorable win has also ensured they toppled Australia in the ICC Test Team Rankings to claim the second spot.
