In the game between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals, the last-over became the talking point. Since a full toss was not referred by the umpires, Pant halted the game. It is here that Shane Watson gave him a few suggestions and the situation became calmer. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to Shane Watson calming Rishabh Pant during the last-over drama.
Last-over drama involving Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant looked very unconvincing when he started to call his batters from the field. In the heat of the moment, it looked like Pant would step onto the pitch. However, Shane Watson seemed to be talking to the captain and the youngster then did not go forward. Pravin Amre was then sent to the field.
