After the video of Ishan Kishan and Captain Rohit Sharma went viral on social media platforms, another clip of the two during the 4th Test match has created a fuss on social media.
On the first day of the fourth test match between India and Australia in Ahemdabad, a clip of Captain Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan went viral on social media platforms. Some people interpreted it in the wrong way and started attacking Rohit Sharma for manhandling Ishan Kishan. In the clip, Ishan Kishan, who is the substitute fielder, came running on the ground to give water bottles to players and dropped a bottle on the ground on his way back. When he came to pick it up, Rohit Sharma playfully attempted to hit him, but the youngster escaped. However, this whole clip was misinterpreted, and people started accusing Rohit Sharma of manhandling and disrespecting Ishan Kishan. Some people were also defending Rohit, saying it was nothing but a playful act.
Ishan Kishan’s place in India’s playing XI has also become a hot topic as he didn’t find a place in the team despite the repeated failures of KS Bharat with the bat. But Captain Rohit Sharma is backing up KS Bharat, as he said that on pitches like this, one has to be ready for the boys to fall at some points in the innings, and at these times, one has to back them. We can’t simply drop them after two matches, and that’s what we are doing with KS Bharat.
