India vs England, 3rd ODI: Focused on one ball at a time, says Rishabh Pant on his match-winning ton | Cricket News – Times of India
Pant’s unbeaten 125 and his 133-run partnership with Hardik Pandya (71 off 55) helped India chase down 260 in the third and final ODI at Manchester and win the series 2-1.
England were bundled out for 259 thanks to some brilliant spells from the likes of Hardik Pandya (4/24) and Yuzvendra Chahal (3/60). Jos Buttler (60), Jason Roy (41) and Moeen Ali (34) played some crucial knocks for the hosts.
Chasing 260, Reece Topley destroyed India’s top order and had them at 72/4, but then Pant and Hardik stitched a match-winning partnership.
“Hopefully, I remember (this knock) for the rest of my life. I was focusing on one ball at a time when I was batting. When your team is under pressure and you bat like that…it is something I aspire to do,” said Pant during the post-match presentation.
“I always enjoy playing in England. At the same time, I enjoy the atmosphere and the situation. The more you play the more experience you gain…It was a good wicket to bat on and the bowlers did a commendable job to restrict them; they (Indian bowlers) were brilliant not only today but for the entire series,” Pant added.
