India’s talented keeper-batter Rishabh Pant showed great maturity as he scored a counter-attacking hundred in South Africa to help the Indian cricket team extend their lead in the ongoing third and final Test match in Cape Town. Now with the three-figure mark, Rishabh Pant has achieved a special milestone by becoming the only keeper-batter to have scored a century on the Rainbow nation and he did it a blockbuster style.
Rishabh Pant walked out to bat after team India lost a couple of wickets in Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara in a span of only two overs, putting team India’s position in trouble. He showed immense fighting spirit as he played a gritty knock against South Africa.
Rishabh joined Virat Kohli in the middle and provided him with crucial support. He played his shots very carefully on a fiery pitch, especially when he was under so much pressure because of criticism on his inconsistency issues.
Pant and Virat formed a partnership and pulled team India out of the troublesome situation. After the Tea, Rishabh Pant smashed Keshav Maharaj to back-to-back sixes. He eventually reached the triple-figure in off just 139 balls, smashing 6 fours and 4 sixes in his centurion knock.
Meanwhile, as soon as Rishabh Pant reached his ton, fans on Twitter went berserk and flooded it with their amazing reactions to the blockbuster performance by Pant. Several cricketers and celebrities also joined the bandwagon and hailed the brilliance of Rishabh Pant.
Here, check out the best reactions from the fans:

#pant played to the situation and that’s what makes this knock special! These runs will add to the #SouthAfrican batter’s worry, as they have to face one of the best bowling attack in test cricket. #SAvIND

Hat tip to #Pant. His century has given India a semblance of chance to win. SA have to score 2 runs more than the 210 they made in the first innings. India need a bagful of wickets today itself

Quoting Ian Chappell: " #Pant has produced 3 inns (Sydney, Brisbane, Ahmedabad) that changed the course of a Test. Most players don't contribute that many in a career." This 1 at Cape Town could be added to that list of those knocks from @RishabhPant17 . Result awaited. #SAvIND

A passage from #pant future autobiography.
“Everyone was reminding me about me making mistakes. If Gavaskar blasted me publicly, my captain Kohli also sent a message through press conference. But, I said if world could accept Sehwag and Dhoni then why not me." #CricketTwitter pic.twitter.com/fQ5pkf0HQT

Rishabh Pant dominating on a fiery pitch, that too when he is under so much pressure. Be it series deciders or the final showdowns, Pant shows up when it matters the most.
