Twitter reacts to Kohli’s furious reaction to fans after Pant’s catch drop
The fans were furious with Rishabh Pant after he dropped a catch of Lendl Simmons during the second T20I against India.
Life is getting hard for India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant as days are passing by, The youngster first had to hear Dhoni’s name in the crowd every time he dropped the catch and the now the chants have turned into ‘Sanju Samson’ after the second T20I against West Indies.
After months being on pressure to fill the big shoes of MS Dhoni, Pant is now feeling the pressure as Samson is breathing down the knock and desperately waiting to get an opportunity.
The second T20I was played at the home ground of Samson and the fans were desperate to see him in the starting XI. But it ended as a disappointment once again as Pant was preferred over him and that resulted in a more ugly scene when Pant dropped a catch of Simmons during the second innings.
As Lewis gave himself ample room to try and cut a Bhuvneshwar Kumar knuckle-ball, the opener got a thick outside-edge which flew to the keeper. Pant, who was initially leaning towards the leg-side, was partially wrong-footed and had to dive to his left to catch the ball. Dive to the left and catch the ball he did, but to his dismay, as his elbows hit the ground, the ball popped out of his hand, resulting in a dropped catch.
The crowd started to roar and mock Pant by chanting Samson’s name. The Indian captain didn’t like the gesture and signalled the crowd to stop. However, the fans on social media didn’t like the fact and asked Kohli to stop backing Pant.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Kohli’s reaction to the fans:
