As the test match progresses, the sledding incidents between the cricketers of both teams have also started coming up. On the third day, Australian batsman Mathieu Wade commented on Rishabh Pant, calling him a player weighing 25 kg, which has made the case serious.
Rishabh Pant is also no more behind
Rishabh Pant has no role in this entire sentence. While wicket-keeping, Rishabh Pant was constantly commenting on Wade from behind. On the defensive batting being done by Wade, there were repeated punches from Pant’s side, on which Wade said – You are 25-30 kg over weight. This time happened during the end of the second session. This sentence was captured in the stump mic.
Case came out after tweet
The video of this incident was also shared by Cricket Australia on its official Twitter handle, which is becoming quite viral at this time. Wade said, “You are 25 kilos over weight. Are you 20 kg 25 to 30 kg over weight. You see yourself on the big screen again and again. It’s nice to see you there. “
Matthew Wade spoke to Fox Sports about the episode with Rishabh Pant. He said, “He laughs all the time. He usually does not say much. Just laugh at you I don’t know what is laughable. “
An attempt to intimidate Pant
There is a different relationship between Australian players and Rishabh Pant. Rishabh Pant answers in his own style to kangaroo players who are famous for sledging. Especially when Pant is wicket-keeping, he constantly tries to distract the attention of Australian batsmen by saying something.
Pant did the same on the third day of the Melbourne Test. Pant was constantly saying something from behind the wicket, which upset Matthew Wade. At first, Wade tried to ignore Pant, but he could not stop himself just before tea.
