When Prithvi Shaw Almost Injured Rohit Sharma Unintentionally
In the ongoing Test, Team India suffered another big blow as their young pacer Navdeep Saini sustained a strain in his groin due to which he left the field in between the game. And, Rohit Sharma, who returned to the side for playing the last couple of Test was on the verge of getting injured in the game that could have set Team India out of the game.
The instance happened when Marnus Labuschagne and Matthew Wade tried to steal a single. Prithvi Shaw was brought in the game as a substitute fielder. He soon picked the ball and threw the ball in order to dislodge the bails at the non-striker’s end. But, he didn’t see that Rohit Sharma standing and hit the latter unintentionally. The Indian vice-captain didn’t give any reaction and just walked up to the ball, to begin with, the game.
Meanwhile, Glenn McGrath and Sanjay Manjrekar, who were in the commentary box, joked out saying that if there were no cameras on the field then Prithvi Shaw would have surely got to listen from his vice-captain.
Coming onto the match, Australia has recovered from early setbacks and they are cruising towards a big total in the first innings. Cameron Green and Tim Paine are batting at a score of 19 each. Marnus Labuschagne emerged as the rescuer for his team, who scored his 1st ton of the ongoing series. He was dismissed by Indian debutant T Natarajan.
