Watch: Rishabh Pant Ignores Instructions, Poses With Fans For Photo Before Rohit Sharma Tests Positive For Covid-19

Team India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant ignored the instruction and posed with the fans during the ongoing warm-up clash against Leicestershire.

Team India’s preparations for the upcoming Test against England have been rocked after their skipper Rohit Sharma tested positive for Covid-19. The BCCI confirmed that the batting star tested positive after a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) conducted on Saturday (June 25).

A release from BCCI stated that Rohit has been placed under isolation at the team hotel and in under the care of the board’s medical team. He will take an RT-PCR on Sunday to confirm and ascertain the severity of the infection.

And as Rohit recovers from Covid-19, a video of Rishabh Pant ignoring the instructions in order to meet fans has started circulating on the social media. The incident reportedly took place on day 3 of the ongoing warm-up game between India and Leicestershire.

There were clear instructions that Team India players would not sign autographs or take photos with the fans during the warm-up game. The decision was taken to ensure that players do not contract the Covid-19 virus. Pant, however, paid little attention to the instruction and posed with some young fans. In the video, he was seen signing a bat for a young fan before posing with a large group of fans.

Here is a video of the incident:

Rishabh Pant’s entertaining fifty in the warm-up game:

Rishabh Pant scored an impressive fifty in the first innings of the ongoing warm-up game. The wicketkeeper-batsman is playing from the Leicestershire camp in the game and made his presence felt with his fine knock.

The home side was reeling at 44 for 3 when Pant came out to bat and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Pant, however, scored a fine fifty to help Leicestershire post a respectable total of 44. He scored 76 runs off just 87 balls with the help of 14 fours and a six.

Meanwhile, India have put on a far better show with the bat in the second innings. After declaring their innings on 246 for 8 in the first innings, the visitors finished day 3 on 364 for 7. With Rohit not coming out to bat, Srikar Bharat opened the innings with Shubman Gill as the duo shared 62 runs for the first wicket.

Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja then scored fifties to warm-up in style ahead of the upcoming Test against England. At stumps, Jadeja was unbeaten on 56 while Mohammed Siraj was unbeaten on 1.

Watch: Mohammed Shami Hilariously Jumps On Cheteshwar Pujara’s Back After Dismissing Him During Warm-up Game

Mohammed Shami celebrated Cheteshwar Pujara’s dismissal in a hilarious fashion after sending him back to the pavilion in the ongoing warm-up game between Team India and Leicestershire.

Cheteshwar Pujara is one of the four Indian players who are playing for Leicestershire in the ongoing 4-day fixture. The other three players are – Rishabh Pant, Prasidh Krishna and Jasprit Bumrah. The decision to include the Indian players in the opposition team was taken to ensure that every player gets an opportunity to prepare for the upcoming Test against England.

Pujara came out to bat on day two of the game. Prior to Leicestershire’s innings, Team India declared their innings on the overnight score of 246 for 8. The visitors started poorly with the bat and were reeling at 81 for 5 at one stage. At that stage, it looked like India would not even touch the 150-run mark.

However, an unbeaten fighting fifty from Srikar Bharat helped India post a respectable total. Apart from Bharat, Virat Kohli (33) was the only Indian player to cross the 30-run mark. For Leicestershire, Roman Walker was the pick of the bowlers. He picked up 5 wickets for just 24 runs.

Mohammed Shami’s hilarious celebration:

Mohammed Shami gave India a solid start with the ball by taking two quick wickets. He first dismissed opener and opposition captain Samuel Evans for just 1 before sending back his India teammate Cheteshwar Pujara for a 6-ball duck to reduce Leicestershire to 22 for 2.

On the second ball of the 9th over, Pujara wanted to cut a rising delivery from Shami. However, the ball was too close to his body and he chopped on to his stumps. And as Pujara turned back and started walking towards the pavilion, Shami decided to have some fun.

The India bowling star ran towards Pujara and jumped on his back while celebrating the wicket. Shami then said something to Pujara before walking towards his teammates to celebrate the wicket.

Here is a clip of the incident:

Talking about the game, Leicestershire were on 88 for 4 at the time of compiling this report. Rishabh Pant and Rishi Patel were batting in the middle for the hosts.

Michael Vaughan Brutally Trolls Virat Kohli After He Fails To Perform Joe Root’s ‘Bat Magic’ Trick

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has brutally trolled Virat Kohli after the latter failed to do a trick with the bat that was recently done by Joe Root.

Virat Kohli was in action on Thursday as Team India locked horns against Leicestershire in the ongoing 4-day warm-up fixture. The former India skipper had to come out to bat quite early as India’s top-order failed to do well.

Kohli came out to bat at number four after both the openers – Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma – departed cheaply. Gill was out for 21 while skipper Rohit returned to the pavilion after scoring 25 off 47 balls.

And just like Gill and Rohit, Kohli too could not score big. Just like the openers, he too got the start but failed to capitalise on it. Kohli returned to the pavilion after a controversial lbw decision from the umpire cut short his stay at the crease. Prior to his departure, the batting superstar scored 33 off 69 balls with the help of 4 boundaries and a six.

Michael Vaughan trolls Virat Kohli:

During his short stay at the crease, Virat Kohli tried his hands at the recent bat trick performed by Root. During the fourth innings of England’s first Test against New Zealand, Root had left the cricket world in disbelief with his physics defying trick.

Standing at the non-striker’s end, Root had his bat almost hovered as it stood perfectly upright with absolutely no support from him. The video of the incident went viral on social media in no time.

Kohli tried to do a similar trick while standing at the non-striker’s end against Leicestershire but failed to get the desired result. The bat lost its balance as soon as Kohli took his hand off. And the video of this incident went viral too as fans came up with different kinds of reactions.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan also decided to react to the incident and he used the opportunity to troll Kohli. Vaughan indirectly said that Kohli is no more in the same league as Root, tweeting:

“Virat not in the same Bat balancing league as Joe”


Root has indeed performed better with the bat than Kohli in the last couple of years or so. While Kohli has not hit a single century in international cricket since 2019, Root has hit 10 Test centuries since January last year.

Talking about the warm-up fixture, India ended day one on 246 for 8. At one stage, it looked like the tourists would not even touch the 150-run mark after they were reduced to 81 for 5. However, a fighting fifty from wicketkeeper-batsman Srikar Bharat helped India recover.

At stumps, Bharat was unbeaten on 70 and Mohammed Shami was giving him company on 18. The ongoing game is India’s only warm-up clash before they lock horns against England in the rescheduled Test. The Test is scheduled to be played from July 1 in Birmingham. After the Test, both the teams will play three T20Is and as many One-Day Internationals.

Rishabh Pant could not keep his emotions in control after Rohit Sharma’s dismissal in the ongoing 4-day warm-up game between Team India and Leicestershire at Grace Road.

The warm-up game began on Thursday (June 23) with Rohit Sharma deciding to bat first after winning the toss. Rohit and Shubman Gill opened the innings for the tourists. Both the batsmen were looking in good touch early on but failed to capitalise on their decent start.

Gill was the first to depart. The young opener had to depart after he edged a delivery from Will Davis behind the stumps where Rishabh Pant took an easy catch. Gill was out for 21 off 28 balls. He hit 4 boundaries during his short stay at the crease.

He and Rohit added 35 runs for the first wicket. 15 runs later, it was Rohit’s turn to return to the pavilion. The India skipper lost his wicket after his miscued a pull shot. Rohit departed after scoring 25 off 47 balls with the help of 3 boundaries.

Rishabh Pant celebrates Rohit Sharma’s dismissal:

An interesting incident took place right after Rohit was dismissed. The India skipper wanted to pull a short delivery from Roman Walker but could only miscue it to the leg side. And as soon as the fielder on the leg side took the catch, Rishabh Pant was seen celebrating Rohit’s dismissal.

Rishabh was patiently waiting for the fielder to complete the catch and as soon as it happened, he turned back and said something to the fielder standing at first slip before pumping his fist in the air. Pant’s gesture made it pretty clear that he was expecting such a dismissal and might have said the same to the Leicestershire player.

Pant along with three other India players – Cheteshwar Pujara, Prasidh Krishna and Jasprit Bumrah – are playing for Leicestershire in the warm-up game. The decision has been taken to give all the Indian players a chance to participate in the warm-up game and prepare for the upcoming Test.

Here is a clip of the incident:

Meanwhile, India have made a poor start in the warm-up game. At lunch on day one of the 4-day contest, the visitors were reeling at 90 for 5. Virat Kohli (9*) and Srikar Bharat (6*) were in the middle, battling it out for the tourists.
