Watch: Pant turns into commentator for an over


Indian wicketkeeper Rishab Pant turned as an on-field commentator for an over in the Adelaide Test as he had more words for Pat Cummins.

Pant turns into commentator

India clinched a memorable win in Adelaide by beating Australia by 31 runs on the final day. On the final day even though Indian bowlers had some trouble in the end, they were on their feet during the morning session.

Due to the rough patches on the pitch, Ravichandran Ashwin troubled Aussie batsmen more in the morning session. During that time, Indian wicketkeeper Rishab Pant had some moments in the field.

The young wicketkeeper continuously chanting behind the stump mics and had more words for the batsman on strike. That conversation from Rishab Pant had put everyone into quite a surprise.

During an entire over of India offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin, Pant could be heard loud and clear ‘encouraging’ his good friend and former IPL teammate Pat Cummins to go for big shots against Ashwin.

At one point, the broadcasters and commentators stop doing commentary during Ashwin’s over and made everyone listen to the wordings from Rishab Pant.

While his actions have been left social media users amused, India batting legend Sunil Gavaskar thought it wasn’t in his team’s best interest to get under the skin of a tearaway pacer when the next Test is set to be played in Perth.

Other than this funny moment, Rishab Pant equaled the record for most no. of catches in a Test match by taking 11 catches and he dropped a one to became solo wicketkeeper to take 12 catches in a match.
