Rishabh Pant Made 3 Mistakes In One Over
First Mistake: During the 10th over of the chase, Rishabh Pant made a mistake which frustrated Rohit Sharma and made the crowd memorize MS Dhoni. Chahal bowled a delivery to Rahim which hit him at the pad. Rahim looked for a run but Sarkar sent him back. Between the mix-up, India had a chance of run-out. But Rishabh Pant’s throw was not good and really frustrated Rohit who was expecting a better throw. Following this crowd started chanting Dhoni… Dhoni…

Second Mistake: In the next ball, the ball again hit Rahim’s pad, India appealed but the Umpire said not-out. Rishabh Pant didn’t show any interest so Rohit didn’t take DRS. But replay showed it was plumbed out.
Third Mistake: In the final ball of the 10th over, Rishabh Pant appealed for a catch but batsman didn’t give out. And this time Rishabh convinced Rohit that he heard a noise. Rohit didn’t want to take the review but Rishabh pant forced him to do so. DRS showed there was not any contact of ball and bat. Following this failure once again crowd started chanting Dhoni… Dhoni…
