Namibia’s batter dived at the crease and the bat ended up being under Rishabh Pant’s feet. Pant quickly touched the bat with his hand and tapped his chest with the same palm. That put a smile on my face! It is so important to respect your trade/art ❤️ #IndvsNam— Rohit Bharati (@vividBharati) November 8, 2021
