WATCH: Rohit Sharma abuses Rishabh Pant for missed catch to dismiss Mitch Marsh

The India-Australia T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8s clash witnessed a heated moment as captain Rohit Sharma yelled at wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant for not attempting a catch to dismiss Aussie skipper Mitch Marsh. Playing at the Daren Sammy Stadium, Team India posted a massive total of 205 on the back of Rohit’s blistering  92 in 41 balls with seven fours and eight sixes.

After the Hitman;  Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube and Hardik Pandya chipped in with valuable cameos to set up this score. Chasing this total, Australia got off to a difficult start as David Warner was dismissed in the first over. Then in the next over, Jasprit Bumrah troubled Mitch Marsh with a short ball.

The delivery climbed into Marsh who managed to get an edge. The ball looped up but Rishabh Pant seemingly lost his footing and slipped a bit. This stopped him from fully committing towards a catch. Reacting to this missed opportunity, Rohit Sharma was seen abusing Pant as he got back to his position.

Felt like a dream: Suryakumar Yadav on Rohit Sharma’s batting

In the mid-innings interview, Suryakumar Yadav was asked about India’s batting effort. Reacting to the question, SKY said, “Felt like a dream (watching Rohit Sharma bat), he batted beautifully. We sat together and talked about it before the game and he (Rohit) showed us the way. I think they finished it really well. It’s a good wicket, a good score, we respect it, hopefully, there will be something in it for the bowlers. Everyone in the team knows their roles and responsibilities.”
