Even coach Rahul Dravid was excited and celebrated the century of Pant in style. Dravid rose from his seat in the dressing room and both hands in the air to celebrate the century of Rishabh. Zaheer Khan talked about the emotions of Dravid and said that it’s very rare for Dravid to celebrate in an animated way.
In a cricbuzz show, Zaheer Khan said , “When you see a knock like this, emotions are bound to come out, especially considering the state in which India was at one stage. Those who have played the game, understand the value of the innings even more, and Dravid has had a long career, and he understands it as well. You don’t see Dravid usually reacting like that.”
