Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Supergiants were playing for 2 crucial points at the Ekana Cricket Stadium on Tuesday when the incident took place. The home side was batting first on a tough wicket to bat on. LSG was 25/2 after the completion of 6 overs as the ball was spinning a bit like usual in Lucknow.
Rohit Sharma brought his main man of the season Piyush Chawla into the attack considering the amount of stiffness the surface was offering. The leg spinner straight away dealt a blow as he nicked off the LSG wicketkeeper Quinton De Kock.
Rohit Sharma’s hilarious reaction as Ishan Kishan forgets to appeal
There was a clear deflection which was clearly evident with the naked eye that even the batsman started to walk off but the keeper Ishan didn’t have any clue about it. Everyone was surprised after knowing that Ishan actually didn’t feel that he took the catch.
Although the umpire gave it out after taking a few seconds, the MI skipper wasn’t impressed with his Wicketkeeper’s unawareness. After catching the ball Ishan started appealing for stumping which triggered the MI skipper as there was a clear edge.
Rohit started shouting at Ishan Kishan in a funny manner.
