Rishabh Pant had to play two forward pushes off one ball in India's last Test against South Africa in Cape Town. The incident happened on the third day before Lunch.
South Africa's tall bowler Marco Jansen bowled a full ball to Pant, who defended it back to the bowler. Jansen though threw it back towards the stumps. But it was misdirected and flew to Pant, who yet again presented the full face of the bat.
