A hilarious incident took place in the first over of India’s innings when the men in blue met England in the second T20I of the three-match series at Edgbaston on Saturday.

Opening the batting with Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant took a risky single to open his account.

However, the bowler, David Willey, obstructed his way which almost led to a collision.

After completing the run, Pant was caught on stump mic asking his captain: “Yeh saamne aa gaya yaar, saamne aa gaya” (he came in front of me while running).

“Takkar maar du kya?” (Should I hit him, if he comes in the way).

“Maarde aur kya,” (Yes hit him what else) replied Rohit Sharma.

In the past, Rohit Sharma has had similar issues. In a T20 match against Bangladesh, he was miffed after seamer Mustafizur Rahman had come in his way and expressed his displeasure. Soon, MS Dhoni, who was the then captain of the side, shoved Rahman aside while taking a single. Dhoni was also fined 75 percent of his match fees while the bowler was docked 50 percent.

When M S Dhoni taught Mustafizur a lesson he’ll never forget 😉😅🔥
