IND vs SA: In the third T20I, India faced South Africa with the goal of sweeping the visitors. Bowling first, the Men in Blue got an early dismissal as Temba Bavuma was quickly dismissed. What makes it even more interesting is that the batter failed to even cross a single-digit score.
This is essentially what team India has done throughout this series. However, South Africa immediately bounced back to a good position afterwards. This was due to the partnership between Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw.
During his knock, Rilee Rossouw played some really impressive shots. However, throughout his tenure at the crease, one specific appeal stood out. Roussow was on strike with the third ball of Umesh Yadav‘s fifth over.
The pitch appeared to brush the left-hander’s thigh pad as it traveled down the leg side. After picking up the ball behind the wickets, Rishabh Pant quickly made a dismissal appeal. Furthermore, the 24-year-old was certain that there was an edge.
IND vs SA: Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant’s Funny Moment on the Pitch Went Viral – Check It Out
Being one of the game’s most lively characters, Rishabh Pant frequently causes amusing occurrences. In the third T20I, the wicketkeeper’s passion was evident. At this point, he filed an appeal for a caught-behind dismissal.
Despite both bowler Umesh Yadav and batsman Rohit Sharma being certain that no edge was there, this was the case. Naturally, the young keeper’s exuberance gave the impression that wasn’t the case. One would question whether it was worthwhile to take a review after seeing his response.
“Bat laga tha yaar,” the assured wicketkeeper yelled, to convince his skipper Rohit Sharma that his appeal was genuine. His plea was ineffective since Rohit merely dismissed Pant’s motion for a review.
Rohit felt confident that he had made the right decision, though, when Umesh Yadav walked away without objecting and pointed to his own leg. Needless to say, it was still funny to watch the incident that took place during the third IND vs SA T20I.
The outcome left Pant upset, but the replays showed that Rohit and Umesh had been correct all along. Internet users paid attention to the event and swamped social media with their comments.
