"As an individual, I don't think about the landmark so much. Three figures are just a number for me, I try to play out the situation most of the times. If it happens, it's good. If it doesn't, can't control that.
"As an individual, I am fine because I knew I was batting well. I didn't capitalize and I missed my hundred, but happy that Shreyas Iyer and I got our team out of trouble," Pant told Anjum before the start of play on Day 3," Pant said before the start of play on Day 3.
