Twitter reactions on Rishabh Pant’s wicket-keeping: Twitter posted mixed reactions on the Indian wicket-keeper.
During the second day of the first Test of the ongoing India’s tour of Australia at Adelaide, India wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant accumulated a lot of attention because of his verbals behind the wickets.
While Pant didn’t get involve in an argument with any opposition cricketer, it was his teasing-cum-funny words which brought him into the limelight. It was evident that Pant’s knack of being chirpy was coming from India Virat Kohli’s ‘lines won’t be crossed‘ school of banter.
After India were bowled out on the first ball of the day, Australia began their innings by losing Aaron Finch on the third ball of the first over.
Kohli introduced spin in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin in the 12th over of the innings. It was during this spell that Pant started to make a mark with his words. Apart from being funny, “Everyone is not Pujara here guys, come on guys” also spoke indirectly about Australia’s batting line-up.
The 21-year old wicket-keeper continued with his verbals and once again made a scathing comment on Australia captain Tim Paine, saying about how he accidentally became the captain.
Talking of his primary job of wicket-keeping, Pant held on to three catches on the field. However, he was also seen missing a couple of Ravichandran Ashwin rank-turning deliveries. With the bat in hand, Pujara scored 25 (38) with the help of two fours and a six yesterday.
