India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant (146, 111b, 20X4, 4x6) smashed his fifth Test century on Day one of the fifth Test against England at Edgbaston on Friday.

The 24-year-old aggressive batter hit 19 boundaries and four sixes during his big knock. As Pant reached his ton in the 58th over of the match, India head coach Rahul Dravid, who was sitting inside the dressing room, erupted from his seat with joy, raising his both hands up in the air, to celebrate the century.

The surprising animated reaction from 'The Wall' who is known for his calm demeanor has since gone viral over various social media platforms.

There was an overwhelming response to Dravid's reaction by the netizens.

"You're a special guy if you can get Rahul Dravid to react that way," Pant's IPL franchise Delhi Capitals reacted responding to Dravid's reaction.

"This image sums up Rishab Pant's innings. Rahul Dravid showing emotions at this level.. we don't see that much," tweeted another cricket buff.

"Magnificent innings by Pant. Congratulations. Each shot played by him was Rahul Dravid's trust and confidence for him. Eagerly waiting for those who criticised Rahul Dravid for supporting Pant," wrote another netizen.
