Rishabh Pant blunder vs Bangladesh: The Bangladeshi opening batsman received a lucky reprieve in the powerplay in Rajkot.
During the second T20I of the ongoing Bangladesh’s tour of India in Rajkot, India wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant committed an unfortunate blunder to give a reprieve to Bangladesh opening batsman Liton Das.
It all happened on the third delivery of the sixth over when Das’ attempt to dance down the track to an India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s delivery saw him getting beaten all ends up. Having collected the ball and dislodged the bails, Pant has easily stumped Das before an unfortunate development saved the batsman.
Replays confirmed that some part of Pant’s gloves was in front of the stumps when the ball made the first contact with his gloves. With the wicket-keeper not allowed to collect the ball in front of the stumps, the ball was declared as a no-ball.
With the Bangladeshi opening batsmen registering a quickfire start, India not getting the wicket came as a blow for them. Reaction on Chahal and captain Rohit Sharma’s face further confirmed the same. Das hitting Chahal for a boundary down the ground on the free-hit which followed further disappointed the hosts.
It was India captain Rohit Sharma who won the toss and chose to field. Both the teams have fielded an unchanged Playing XI for this match. Another victory for Bangladesh will see them registering a historic series-win in India.

So Rishabh Pant’s brain fade has cost India a wicket.
He collected the ball in front of the stumps before completing Liton Das’ stumping. Chahal will not be pleased at all. #INDvBAN
