Srinagar: The reaction of Team India captain Rohit Sharma on a drop catch by pacer Arshdeep has gone viral on Twitter.
On Sunday, Pakistan beat India by five wickets in a last over thriller of Asia Cup in Dubai. There were lot of moments to look into but the one moment that is been talked about is Rohit Sharma’s reaction to the drop catch.
In the 18th over which was bowled by Ravi Bishnoi, Pakistan needed 34 runs with Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali on the crease. On the third delivery, Asif played a sweep shot and ball went into the air and was looking like an easy take for Arshdeep. But fate had other plans in store, as the ball went through his hands, and Asif Ali survived.
Seeing this, India skipper Rohit Sharma could not control his emotions and he was left fuming. Rohit’s angry reaction has now gone viral on the social media, which led to a mixed reaction from the public.
Meanwhile Arshdeep was backed Virat Kohli in post match press conference and also by former India spinner Harbhajan Singh on Twitter.
“Stop criticising young @arshdeepsinghh. No one drop the catch purposely..we are proud of our India boys .. Pakistan played better.. shame on such people who r putting our own guys down by saying cheap things on this platform bout arsh and team.. Arsh is GOLD,” Harbhajan tweeted.
