Felt Special When Sourav Sir Lifted Me: Pant After Win Against RR
Despite a magnificent century by Rajasthan Royals’ opener, Ajinkya Rahane, the hosts couldn’t stop Delhi Capitals from chasing down 192 inside 19.2 overs.
Amid the celebrations, the duo were later seen in a post-match interaction regarding the game. When asked by his teammate Shaw about how he felt about his innings, Pant replied, “It’s a great feeling, especially the fact that I was with you (Shaw) in the middle, I knew we would finish it.”
Pant took his team to the top of the table with a 78 off 36 that included six fours and four sixes. It was after his fiery knock that even the dada couldn’t hide his emotions and went inside the ground to lift Pant.
On a night when Ajinkya Rahane (105) and Steve Smith tried to ensure that everything went well for the 2008 Champions, it wasn’t just meant to be.
Pant then asked Shaw about his lucky moment against Jofra Archer, when he missed a full toss that went on to light the bails, but they still didn’t fall on the ground.
While Pant drove the game with boundaries from one end, Prithvi with his innings of 42 runs from 39 balls made sure that the runs kept on coming on regular intervals.
