New Delhi: There were many ups and downs in the Indian innings on the first day of the second Test between India and England which started on Saturday. Indian batsman Rohit Sharma’s brilliant 161 runs entertained the audience a lot, while Rishabh Pant also left no stone unturned to hit fours and sixes on the field.
But there was a time on the field when Rishabh Pant showed attitude to English players. It was so that Root was bowling in the 86th over that the England fielders made some comments during this over. At this, Pant stood behind his bat and started talking to those fielders.
Pant’s attitude seemed as if he was saying that I will not bat until you are silent. He nodded to Ben Stokes standing in the slip. Later on, he also talked to England captain Joe Root. When Ben Stokes also came near the pitch, he had a lot of conversation with Pant. Then Stokes left. Rishabh Pant also said something to umpire Arvind Sharma about this. The umpire intervened in this matter and explained it to him and he also spoke to the England players.
