The 24-year-old Pant hit his century from 133 balls and was unbeaten in 100 runs when India were bowled out for 198 in 67.3 overs. 

He became the first Asian wicket-keeper to score a Test century in South Africa. He’s the second wicket-keeper to knock Test centuries in Australia, England, India and South Africa. Australian Adam Gilchrist was first wicket-keeper to achieve that feat. 

Pant is also the third wicket-keeper to score a Test century in England, Australia and South Africa. Gilchrist and Jonny Bairstow from England also achieved this feat.
