Rohit Sharma loses cool at Rishabh Pant; uses cuss words for the youngster during Vizag ODI

Posted On

Rohit Sharma was left frustrated with teammate Rishabh Pant during a particularly nerve-wracking passage of play in the second ODI between India and West Indies in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday.


Rohit was very angry after 22-year-old Pant threw the ball to the non-striker’s end, instead of his end.

It all happened in the 33rd over of the second innings bowled by Kuldeep Yadav. India got a golden chance to run-out Jason Holder, who formed a decent partnership with opener Shai Hope. However, the Indian wicketkeeper messed up the opportunity by throwing the ball back to the bowler instead of throwing it to Rohit.


And after missing the opportunity, the Indian vice-captain used some cuss words towards Rishabh in the heat of the moment, which got caught on the stump mic.

“Are idhar de na..wo..bhe*ch** aadhe raste pe hai yaar,” Rohit was heard saying to Pant.

However, that missed chance did not cost India much as Kuldeep picked up a hat-trick against the Windies in the last three delivers of the 33rd over.


India eventually won the Vizag ODI by 107 runs. The third and final match of the ODI series will be played in Cuttack on Sunday (December 22).
