On the Australian soil, Pant ended the five-Test series as the second-highest run-scorer after Cheteshwar Pujara, notching 350 runs in seven innings. While behind the stumps, he broke the record for most catches (20) by an Indian wicket-keeper in a Test series.
The 21-year-old, who made his Test debut against England last year, has cemented his place in the Test squad. In nine Tests, Pant has blazed two centuries each in England and Australia, amassed 696 runs with an impressive average of 49.7 and a healthy strike rate.
When asked to pick up the biggest positives for India from the recent series, the former captain zeroed on Pujara and Jasprit Bumrah, saying: "They played excellent cricket throughout and the batting clicked. They scored 400-600 runs, and that was the key. Bumrah and Pujara were simply brilliant. They played big roles behind the win"
