Matthew Wade and Rishabh Pant were involved in personal battles all day long on day 3 of the Boxing Day Test. While team India and Australia collided on the field, Pant and Wade had a go at each other. Both the wicketkeepers were chirping every now and then and having a go at each other.
The Australian Cricket Team always has a history of sledging their opponents. They have sledged every opposition that has come in their way. More often than not, the sledging also goes on personal remarks. The Australians have been infamous for passing personal remarks and troubling the opposition players. Similar was the case with Matthew Wade and Rishabh Pant as they took to the field on Day 3 of the Boxing Day Test.
Matthew Wade Passes Indecent Remark Towards Rishabh Pant
The Indians were on top of the Australians in all the sessions of the second Test. They exerted intense pressure on the Australian batsmen in the third innings. Rishabh Pant, from behind the stumps, constantly disturbed the Australian batsmen. Matthew Wade clearly did not like being pressurized.
He passed on a personal remark towards Pant. He said, “You’re 25 kilos overweight. Are you 20 kilos, 25 or 30 kilos overweight? You’re looking at yourself on the big screen again? Very funny watching yourself on the screen”
“He just laughs all the time. He doesn’t really say much, he’s just always laughing at you. I don’t know what’s so funny, it must be my batting,” Matthew Wade added.
