His splendid 89-run innings, won us that coveted trophy, in a match with started out with utter disappointment. The Indian side had crumbled to 36 all out in the first match of the month-long series.
Despite the pressure, several injuries, the young team showed grit and spirit and won the game.
Pant got to the 1,000-run mark in his 27th inning, breaking the record of former India captain MS Dhoni’s (32 innings). “It’s been a dream series. The team management always backs (me) and tells me, you are a match-winner, and you have to go win the match for the team. I keep thinking every day that I want to win matches for India, and I did it today,” said Pant at the after-match presentation.
