new Delhi: Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, who was the hero of historic victory in Australia, is known for his playful style. During the ongoing Test match between India and England, he guided the Indian bowlers in their own style, standing behind the wicket. His style was recorded in the camera on the wicket. Pant’s style on social media is quite entertaining.
During the second day’s match on Saturday, a similar style was seen. It happened that the 151st over was being thrown. Ashwin was throwing his 43rd over and Oli Pope was standing in front. As soon as Pope tried to hit the full-ball, it jumped to the third man instead of going to the deep boundary. Pant understood that the ball went high, Pant wanted to grab the ball without delay, but what?
The ball started going towards the third man. The view on the field was that both Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant started running in different directions. Although Rohit Sharma was right and he stopped the ball from going to the boundary, but everyone was surprised to see this view. Pant himself later started laughing at his judgment. This fun moment of Pant’s fielding is becoming increasingly viral.
However, this is not the first time this has happened to Pant. A similar funny moment was revealed during the Australia Tour when Pant appealed against Tim Paine. Rishabh was so excited about this wicket that he made a tremendous appeal. He felt that the ball had gone straight to his hands, taking the outer edge of the bat, when in reality nothing like this happened. On this appeal of Pant, Rohit Sharma, Rahane and other players also started laughing.
