Batting at No.8 and playing in his third Test, the 23-year-old needed just 86 balls to reach his first test hundred. He made his first 50 off 61 balls and next 50 came off in only 25 balls.
During his innings, Pandya set a new India Test record when he took 26 runs off the first five balls of a Malinda Pushpakumara over, eclipsing the previous record of 24 set by Sandeep Patil in 1982 and equalled by legendary allrounder Kapil Dev in 1990.
