Rishabh Pant is known as one of the most explosive batsman of modern day cricket but he is also known as a prankster. During a match between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals, Pant tried to block Suresh Raina from getting into the crease.
The incident took place after a break when television cameras turned back on the pitch, Rishabh Pant was seen blocking Suresh Raina and not allowing him to return to the crease. Though Pant was joking and Raina was also seen laughing after it happened, twitter user didn’t take nicely.
Twitter immidiately became active after the incident and asked Pant to never try this with MS Dhoni. One user wrote, “Don't try this with MSD.” MS Dhoni himself is a prankster who always remembers to give it back in his own style.
Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals were thrashed in a humiliating defeat by Chennai Super Kings as the latter won the match by 80 runs. Rishabh Pant was dismissed by Imran Tahir for just 5 runs, while Suresh Raina went on to hit his second fifty this season.
Raina scored 59 off 37 after Delhi Capitals won the toss and opted to bowl first. MS Dhoni on the other hand smashed 44 off 22 balls to take CSK to a comfortable total of 179. Delhi Capitals were bundled out for just 99 runs.
