India fast-bowler Shardul Thakur lost his cool and seemingly abused his teammate Deepak Chahar after the latter dropped an easy catch in the ongoing T20I against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney.
Chahar’s drop summed up India’s fielding standard in the game as the Men in Blue struggled on the field once again. The innings was marred by several dropped catches and misfields as Virat Kohli & Co’s struggles on the field continued. And when Chahar did it, Shardul Thakur could not keep his emotions under check.
The incident took place in the 17th over of the innings when Shardul Thakur was bowling to Glenn Maxwell. On the fifth ball of the over, Maxwell miscued a shot towards deep backward point. Chahar came running in and reached under the ball in time only to let the ball burst through his hands, much to the frustration of Shardul Thakur.
The right-arm pacer was furious with Chahar’s fielding and was seen saying something angrily while looking towards him. As if that was not enough, Maxwell hit the next ball for a huge six to add salt to Shardul Thakur’s injury.
Here is a clip of the incident:
Talking about the game, Australia finished their innings on an imposing total of 186 for 5. Matthew Wade once again starred with the bat for the hosts, scoring 80 off 53 balls while Glenn Maxwell slammed 54 from 36. For India, Washington Sundar picked up two wickets for 34 runs off his four overs.
The Men in Blue have already sealed the three-match series by winning the first two games. After the T20Is, both the teams will lock horns in the four-match Test series, starting on December 17.
