Rishabh Pant has been facing a lot of criticism in recent times due to his dismal performances with the bat and with the gloves. Nevertheless, the 22-year old scored an unbeaten 22-ball 33 in second India vs West Indies T20I and redeemed himself a bit. However, he dropped a catch of Evin Lewis in the fifth over and the fans started chanting MS Dhoni’s name, who has taken a sabbatical from cricket after the 2019 World Cup. This certainly didn’t go down well skipper Virat Kohli, who was standing near the boundary ropes, and he lashed out at the spectators near him.

This was, however, not the first time when something like this has happened on the cricket field. Earlier this year, the same thing happened in Mohali during India vs Australia 4th ODI, when the youngster wasn’t up to the mark behind the stumps. Kohli has also termed this behaviour from fans as ‘disgraceful’ and asked the people to give him time to get better. However, the skipper lost his cool on this occasion and bashed the fans for mocking Pant.
