In 2nd T20I vs WI, Rohit Sharma’s happy reaction to Rishabh Pant being adjudged man of the match

India vs West Indies: Rohit Sharma reacts hilariously after Rishabh Pant was awarded the man of the match award in the 2nd T20I vs West Indies.

Rohit’s men held their nerves to register an eight-run win over West Indies in the second T20I at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Friday. Rishabh Pant was the star of the game and was awarded the Man of the Match award in his post-match presentation.

However, Rohit was overjoyed to see Pant’s name announced for the award and made fun of the young wicket-keeper batsman. After cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle named Pant as the award winner, Rohit sarcastically replied, “Rishabh Pant is the man of the match?” Harsh pitched in saying, “Come on Rohit, he batted very well.”

Pant played a brilliant inning in the second T20I and scored 52 runs in just 28 balls. His innings included seven fours and a six. He shared a massive 76-run partnership with Venkatesh Iyer, who scored 33 runs in just 18 balls. Iyer hit four fours and a six. Earlier, former Indian captain, Virat Kohli scored 52 runs in 41 balls to give the team a solid platform despite the wickets falling around him.

The teams will now meet in the third and final T20 match in Kolkata on Sunday. They won the first game of the series by a comfortable margin of six wickets. After the West Indies series, India will face Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I and two-Test series starting February 24.
