Rishabh Pant urges Pat Cummins to hit some sixes
This incident also happened recently as it was in the Adelaide Test, the first Test of the ongoing four-match series between Australia and India. Pant decided to give Pat a taste of his own medicine.
Australia were chasing a target of 323, but were in a bad position as they were six down and had 160 more runs to do. It was the 27th over of the day and Ashwin was bowling. Pant started to chirp in Pat’s ears to unsettle him.
The stump mic caught Pant saying, “Let’s see some sixes, come on Patty. Not going for the shots Patty? Tough to play here.” He carried on with his banter for the whole over. However Pat stayed calm and decided to concentrate on his game.
The incident was extremely hilarious. This is because it was the first time a wicketkeeper was mocking an opposition batsmen in the most humorous way possible.
