Indian opener and ODI vice-captain Rohit Sharma is known as one of the good boys. He always manages to keep his emotions in check while playing on field. He has always believed to let his bat do the talking.
But in the third ODI against Australia in Ranchi, Rohit lost his cool and vented out his anger. The unusual moment happened when Rohit was given out when the team was in a precarious situation.
The incident took place in the fifth over of the Indian innings. Aussie pacer Pat Cummins bowled a length ball which trapped Rohit in front of the stumps. It looked plumb but the on-field umpire didn’t give out. Cummins was convinced and asked skipper Aaron Finch to go for DRS.
HawkEye showed that Cummins was right as it returned Three Reds. As a result the on-field umpire had to overturn his decision. On the other hand Rohit was pretty much convinced that he had nicked the ball. As a result he didn’t look at the giant screen. Rather he took the time to take some drink.
But when he saw the on-field umpire raise the finger, he was left dumbstruck. He couldn’t believe it and openly vented his anger and frustration. Even in the dressing room, he was seen showing his displeasure.
