Rishabh Pant Couldn’t Get Where Ball Went & Ran In Opposite Direction, Fans Can’t Stop Laughing

Rishabh Pant may have been on the radar of everyone for his poor keeping behind the wickets but people have to agree that he is the one who brought smile on the faces of the Indian cricketers who were having tough time on the field as the England skipper was looking unstoppable. First time Pant made everyone laugh with his comment which was related to his teammate Washington Sundar and on the second day again, he did something which resulted in him trending on social networking sites.

During the England innings, Ravichandran Ashwin bowled a full-toss to Ollie Pope which the batsman was not able to connect properly. The ball went behind the wickets in air and Rohit Sharma who was on the slip ran to collect the ball. However, Rishabh Pant thought that the ball would land near the wickets so he ran towards the wicket which was completely opposite to where the ball went.

The wicketkeeper was also heard saying that he didn’t see where the ball went, everyone on the field was seen having a laugh because of this incident. Even commentators were amused to see Pant running opposite towards the direction of the ball and the video of this incident was also shared on the social media networks which went viral immediately.

While Rishabh Pant was slammed for his poor keeping as he missed an easy stumping of Jack Leach on the bowling of R Ashwin, he went on to become the highest scorer for India with 91 runs as India was 257/6 at the end of the Day 3. It’s quite unfortunate for Pant that he again missed his century but his poor keeping has once again started the debate that Wriddhiman Saha should be included in the squad as specialist wicketkeeper while Pant should be included as a specialist batsman.

That was quite funny of Pant’s part! What do you say?
