Twitterati Came Up With Hilarious Memes After Rishabh Pant Dropped Two Catches

Rishabh Pant

It was in 2019 when Rishabh Pant impressed one and all with his outstanding performance in Sydney. He scored 159 runs at that time, which is the highest score by any wicketkeeper-batsman in an overseas Test.

However, two years down the line, Rishabh Pant suffered a horror start at the same venue on Day 1 of the third test match against Australia.

Not once but twice, Rishabh Pant dropped the catches of debutant Will Pucovski. Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Siraj became the two unlucky bowlers, while Pucovski turned out to be super-lucky.

The first incident took place during the 22nd over of the game, which was bowled by Ravichandran Ashwin. He bowled a straight ball and Pacovski played for the turn. Though the edge was taken by Rishabh Pant but he failed to hold on to the catch.

The second incident was rather controversial. It happened in the last ball of the 25th over bowled by Mohammed Siraj, Pucovski got a glove to a short ball and it lobbed behind Rishabh Pant. He ran back, dived, and grabbed the ball, however, it popped off. But Rishabh Pant made a second attempt and it appeared that he has taken the catch, however, during the process, the ball already had hit the ground. With the luck shinning on his side, Will Pucovski was able to get past the half-century.

Meanwhile, fans on social media were quick to express their disappointment. While there are many who are trolling the wicketkeeper, however, there were many who came up with hilarious reactions and memes on the same.

Here, check out some of the hilarious memes we found on Twitter:
