Pant, who played an unbeaten knock of 89 runs in the fourth innings of the Gabba Test to help India seal a remarkable victory, penned a heartwarming post on Instagram.
‘Spider-Pant’ posted a short clip in which he was seen sporting different Team India‘s jerseys. The clip also features the wicket-keeper batsman in the Delhi Capitals jersey. Pant pointed out how his cricketing journey so far has been a topsy-turvy ride and thanked his fans for support and wishes.
“It’s been quite the ride so far, with a fair share of ups and downs! Thank you to each one of you for all your love, support and wishes. Keep them coming as we move towards the next milestone #RP17 #4Million,” Pant captioned the post on Instagram.
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.
