Team India skipper Rohit Sharma was in an animated mood in the first T20I against Australia on Tuesday. After a DRS review, Rohit was jokingly grabbed Dinesh Karthik’s face as fans called it “bromance” between Rohit and DK.
It so happened that Glenn Maxwell overturned Umesh Yadav’s delivery when the Indian players appealed. It looked like Karthik wasn’t so sure about the sound, but Rohit was absolutely determined.
Although the on-field umpire had ruled out that it hadn’t been ruled out, Rohit requested a review and the third umpire confirmed that the ball had indeed deflected off Maxwell’s bat after confirming it via ultra-edge.
