The second match of the ICC World Test Championship series between the Indian cricket team and the Sri Lankan cricket team is currently happening at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Rishabh Pant won every cricket fan’s hearts with his half-century in the previous match of this series, and now he has impressed everyone again with his smartness.
The Decision Review System (DRS) has become an integral part of the sport in the last few years. Initially, the Indian cricket team was reluctant to accept the DRS system, but now, they have accepted it. In every match now, including the IPL matches, there is DRS facility available.
However, fans should note that taking the DRS correctly is not everyone’s cup of tea. MS Dhoni has mastered the art like no one else. The other captains have also admitted that the bowlers always try to convince them for DRS, but they have to make the decision considering the opinions of other players as well.
The wicket-keeper has a good view of what happens in front of him. Whether it is LBW or caught behind, he can give a good opinion related to the DRS. Rishabh Pant is keeping the wickets for India in this match, and he gave a good suggestion to Rohit Sharma and convinced him to take DRS.
Mohammed Shami bowled a length delivery to Dhananjaya de Silva which hit him on the pads. At first, it looked like the ball hit too high and it would miss the stumps. However, Pant convinced for a review and the decision was overturned with wickets hitting.
Fans on Twitter laud Rishabh Pant for his great suggestion to Rohit Sharma
The cricket universe noticed how Rishabh Pant convinced Rohit Sharma to take a review and then ultimately de Silva was dismissed. Here are some of the top Twitter reactions to it:
