India bowling coach Paras Mhambrey praised wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant's unbeaten hundred in the second innings, saying it got the team back into the match. Pant's unbeaten hundred helped India set a 212-run target for South Africa after the tourists' were bowled out for 198 in the second innings.
"It was a fabulous innings and got us really back into the game. From a personal perspective, there is generally pressure on him. Obviously, in a couple of innings, he didn't get runs but getting runs at a crucial stage for the team, that's really important. He has set the game nicely for us. Really, really happy with the way he played and showed lot of character as it wasn't an easy wicket to bat on," said Mhambrey in the post-day virtual press conference.
