‘That’s an irresponsible shot’ – Sunil Gavaskar slams Rohit Sharma for throwing his wicket away in Brisbane Test
Team India bowled superbly on the second morning of the ongoing Brisbane Test to bundle Australia out for 369 runs in the first innings. The onus was now on the batsmen to start well and make sure to get close to the home team’s total. But Shubman Gill endured his first real failure of the series edging one off Pat Cummins even Rohit Sharma, much like the previous Test, looked ominous at the other end.
He played some wonderful strokes but eventually got out on 44 playing an awful shot off Nathan Lyon. It was an unnecessary shot given the circumstances and most importantly, Rohit had done all the hard work upfront. Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar was commentating for 7Cricket at the same time and he was livid with the opening batsman for throwing his wicket away.

You’re a senior player, Gavaskar to Rohit
“Why? Why? Why? That’s an unbelievable shot. That’s an irresponsible shot. There is a fielder there at deep square leg. You’ve just hit a boundary a couple of deliveries earlier, why would you play that shot? You’re a senior player, there’s no excuse, absolutely no excuse for that shot. An unnecessary wicket, an unnecessary wicket, gifted away. Totally unnecessary,” Gavaskar said.
Meanwhile, it has started raining in Brisbane and the play hasn’t resumed since Tea break. India are currently at 62/2 after 26 overs with two of their best batsmen, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, battling it out in the middle. Rohit Sharma will feel he missed out on a big score after the way he was batting. Check this best ipl betting tips and tricks.
