Rishabh Pant emerged as the game-changer on Tuesday as India secured a famous three-wicket win in the final Test against Australia in Brisbane. The win also saw India wrap up the Border-Gavaskar trophy with flying colours as Ajinkya Rahane & co. wrapped up the four-match series 2-1. 

Pant's match-winning knock saw many former cricketers and fans praise the 23-year-old on social media, but Virender Sehwag went a step further lauding the youngster. 

The former cricketer shared a meme on Twitter, which had Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath's picture in it, mentioning that from hence onwards Brisbane would be called as "Pant Nagar".
