Rohit Sharma Becomes Umpire On David Warner’s Dismissal: The ongoing 4-match Test series between India and Australia is turning out to be one of the most entertaining and thrilling series ever. Besides all the great cricket we got to witness in the past few months, the series has had its share of controversies and some really amusing and entertaining instances on the field.
On Monday, India’s star batsman Rohit stole all the limelight with his funny antics on the field. First, he was seen teasing Steve Smith by shadow practicing on the pitch (without scuffing the pitch).
Later, Rohit decided to play the role of the umpire as well and raised his finger to confirm the result after DRS’ resulted in David Warner’s wicket.
The incident took place during the first session of day 4 of the Gabba Test after Washington Sundar trapped David Warner plumb in front. Australia decided to go for DRS though Warner was pretty much sure of his fate. In the end, Australia lost the review and just when the on-field umpire raised his finger again, Rohit also joined in and raised his finger too.
Sharma was seen walking back to his fielding position raising his arm in tandem with Wilson nonchalantly.

Rohit Sharma has been a true all-rounder this Test. He’s bowled medium pace, donned a wicket keeping glove & pretended to keep & there he stood next to Paul Wilson post the Warner DRS with his finger up playing umpire. Oh also opened the batting #AusvIND
