Rohit Sharma, the Indian captain, is famed for his witty remarks and playful banter, both within the team and at press conferences.
In a unique turn of events, Rohit Sharma engages in a lighthearted exchange with on-field umpire Virender Sharma during the 3rd T20I match between India and Afghanistan at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
In the second over, a delivery from Azmatullah Omarzai brushed the inside edge of Rohit’s bat, striking his pads. Despite the batsman taking a single, the umpire ruled it as a leg-bye, provoking a visible reaction from Rohit.
“Hey Viru (Virender Sharma), did you give the first ball as thigh pad – It clearly touched the bat. I have already dismissed for 0 twice,” Rohit was caught on the stump mic.
Earlier, India won the toss and opted to bat first.
