More than the wicketkeeping, Rishabh Pant is hitting the news headlines these days for his on-field sledging.
Just a couple of days back, Pant was a reason of amusement for netizens as he was noticed sledging Australian batsmen. Standing behind the wickets, he made comments like “Not everyone is Pujara” and it really made up as a source of fun for many.
Young lad Rishabh Pant was found sledging the Aussies behind the stumps. Pant shouted at Nathon Lyon : "I doubt number 11 batsman of you kids may top the list of highest run scorers in this series"#AUSvIND #RishabhPant #NathanLyon pic.twitter.com/OVSnEHN0RW

On the 5th day of the match, Pant came back to his ways. This time he was noticed sledging Pat Cummins who was batting with captain Tim Paine. Standing behind the wicket, this time Pant kept on saying, “Come on Pat, It’s not easy to bat here”.
While many people enjoyed his ways, some of them found it extra. Watch the video below-

Will the Commentators be paid for this particular over?
I think the 1 over % should go to the keeper. Multitasking!!
