Rishabh Pant gets under scanner after suggesting his batters to stage a walkout!!


Rishabh Pant faced the heat after telling his batter to stage a walkout after the on-field umpires refused to check the above waist full toss bowled to Rovman Powell by Obed McCoy.

Pant, the team’s skipper, was seen signaling the batters to leave the field. Powell had hit McCoy for three consecutive sixes with the Capitals needing 36 off six balls, and the no-ball would have given them an extra delivery to try and win the game.

Watson had to intervene to calm down the nerves, and the match was finally completed with Rajasthan Royals winning the game by 15 runs.

“Pant was wrong to instruct his batters to come back,” said Irfan Pathan.

“Rishabh Pant should have controlled himself as you can’t do that in a match,” said Piyush Chawla.

“Rishabh Pant calling batters back and coach entering the field to stop the play was unacceptable. I hope I never see this kind of a thing again,” said Kevin Pietersen.
