With the hundred in Sydney, Pant also became the first Indian wicket-keeper to score a hundred in Australia.
Pant also became the only second visiting wicket-keeper to register Test centuries both in England and Australia. Jeffery Dujon, with hundreds in Manchester and Perth in 1984, was the first.
Pant is now the second highest run-scorer in the ongoing four-Test series in Australia. He overtook Virat Kohli’s 282 runs and trails only Cheteshwar Pujara, who leads with 521 runs.
Moreover, Pant became the first wicket-keeper from the subcontinent to score over 200 runs and take 20 catches in a Test series.
India lead the four-Test series 2-1 after winning in Adelaide and Melbourne.
