Kieron Pollard, the man on whose ball the six came, was left stumped at Pant's impressive display of skill and dexterity. The Delhi left-hander blazed his way to a superb 58 off 38 balls which comprised five fours and three sixes.
Towards the end, the contest had its dose of drama as India lost the wickets of Dhawan and Pant leaving Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik to run the single on the last ball bowled by Fabian Allen who misfielded the former’s shot which secured India's victory.
The target of 182 for India was set up by left-hander Nicholas Pooran’s quick-fire half-century (53 off 25).
