Rohit Sharma playfully hits Ishan kishan, IND vs AUS: Indian captain Rohit Sharma came under fire for his shocking behaviour towards youngster Ishan Kishan during the Ahmedabad Test.
During the drinks break, Ishan Kishan carried water bottles to the Indian players on the field. As it turned out, he gave one of the water bottles to Rohit Sharma.
The Indian captain drank some portion of the water before going on to return it to Ishan Kishan in the first place. Meanwhile, Ishan Kishan himself was kind of rushing up.
While he was in a hurry, he tried to get the water bottle from Rohit Sharma. As it happened, Ishan Kishan failed to get the water bottom properly from the Indian captain as it slipped out of his hands.
Just as when the water bottle fell down on the ground, Rohit Sharma playfully attempted to hit Ishan Kishan. The video clip of the same has gone viral.
In fact, the video clip was kind of funny but the whole episode was blown out of proportion on Twitter. The majority of the fans disrespected Rohit Sharma for disrespecting Ishan Kishan.
