The India vs England second Test has become interesting in many ways. From funny moments to interesting cricket action, cricket fans are enjoying some thrilling moments. On the third day, a hilarious moment between skipper Rohit Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav grabbed the spotlight.
The Hillarious Moment:
In the early stages of England’s second innings, a crucial moment arose in the third over involving Zak Crawley and a potential review by India. Jasprit Bumrah, the bowler, narrowly missed Crawley’s outside edge, prompting discussions among Rohit Sharma, wicketkeeper KS Bharat, and Kuldeep Yadav. Despite Kuldeep’s urging, Rohit and Bharat were unconvinced about the review, a decision that proved wise upon viewing the replay, which showed a significant gap between bat and ball. Rohit gestured towards Kuldeep, indicating his skepticism, and later mockingly applauded when the truth of the delivery was revealed on the big screen.
What added surprise to the incident was Kuldeep’s position at square leg, suggesting he may not have had the clearest view compared to Bharat or Bumrah. The episode underscored the importance of clear communication and careful decision-making in utilizing review opportunities effectively. Despite the initial uncertainty, India’s decision not to review ultimately proved correct, highlighting the team’s astuteness in critical match situations. The video of this hilarious moment went viral and netizens are drooling over it.
