Till now Indian Team has not solved the mystery of no.4 which was also seen in the ground when both Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer stepped in to play for no.4. commentator Sunil Gavaskar and Harsha Bhogle took a chance to mimic this situation.
When it was the turn for No. 4 to bat both Rishabh and Iyer were seen entering the ground. Shreyas Iyer had to back out from the ground and gave the chance to Rishabh. Unfortunately, the skipper was out and soon Iyer had to move to ground. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant were handling the pitch after India lost all the three top-order batsmen.
Unluckily both no.4 and no.5 were out on the ball of Bjorn Fortuin. The wicketkeeper-batsman Pant scored 19 runs in 20 balls and Iyer scored five runs and was stumped by de Kock.
Sunil Gavaskar and Harsha Bhogle talked on BCCI’s question about no.4 batting
Seeing the confusion Gavaskar and Bhogle asked the viewer a question- who should bat at no.4 in T20I and also gave the options to select among Iyer, Pant, Manish Pandey and KL Rahul. Viewers laughed at the question when Sunil Gavaskar turned the question into Kaun Banega Crorepati style. Gavaskar mimicked Amitabh Bachchan and copied his tone.
In very hilarious way, Gavaskar and Bhogle communicated with each other. Bhogle mimicked, saying ‘woh to aapke dost Karte Hain’. BCCI shared the video on Twitter.

Virat Kohli in the post-match ceremony cleared the miscommunication between Pant and Iyer for No.4.
The South African skipper Quinton de Kock showed commendable performance and equalled the series by 1-1. He scored unbeaten 79 runs out of 52 balls. No Indian bowler was able to stop the player in hitting boundaries. The proteas easily chased down the target of 134 runs at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium (Bengaluru).
