Washington Sundar said he did not know how to react when Rishabh Pant went to make a backlash from England veteran, fast bowler James Anderson during the fourth test between India and England in Ahmedabad in March.
“I literally didn’t know how to react. Most of all, he was fighting in the ’90s … I think at 93 he still managed to jump over a slip and a dam,” Sundar told ESPNCricinfo.
Pant and Sundar formed a partnership of 113 tracks for the seventh goal, with the former scoring 101 of 118 balls.
“So I didn’t know how to react. He wanted to do that and he was very successful. Nobody could tell him anything at that moment because he was in another zone and he just wanted to go after the English. He played an amazing knock.” , he said.
Then Sundar set up the 106th stand with Axar Patel, but in the end he was left without partners and remained at 96
