However, in the second possibility of India, Pant was fired by James Anderson for a single career. India won the Trent Bridge test for 203 races.
In the fourth test, which England won by 60 races, Pant was fired by a duck after facing 29 deliveries in the first possibility of India and scored 18 in the second possibility of India.
However, Pant, after scoring just five runs in the ongoing Test, amended his previous chain of low scores and achieved the coveted three-figure mark in the Test Cricket.
Previously India's starter, KL Rahul, achieved his fifth century of testing after the highest order in India did not accumulate races in 464 races. After losing half a century in the first possibility, KL Rahul resisted the attack of England.
KL Rahul connected 17 fours and a solitaire of six in his century.
With his century, KL Rahul is now second on the list of Indian hitters who have the highest scores as starters in the fourth chance in England. The legend Sunil Gavaskar leads the table of his 221 in The Oval in 1979. Chetan Chauhan is third on the list for his 80 in The Oval in 1979.
