Rishabh Pant was a shining star as he rose to the occasion to steer India to a win in a thrilling chase session. He slammed an unbeaten 89 runs off 138 deliveries with the help of nine boundaries and a six. Pant had company of the likes of Shubham Gill who took the visitors across the finishing line. Gill was heroic in his knocks as he added a valuable contribution of 91 runs including eight fours and two sixes to the scoreboard for India. The hosts began the day well as India lost the crucial wicket of their vice-captain Rohit Sharma very early. Cheteshwar Pujara played the sheet-anchor role for the team as he scored 56 important runs in a typical Test cricket knock and changed India's fortunes.
