Twitterati React After Rohit Sharma Shadow Bats In Front Of Steve Smith

Twitterati React After Rohit Sharma Shadow Bats In Front Of Steve Smith: It was a couple of days ago when Australian batsman Steve Smith had stirred a controversy after a video of him shadow batting went viral on social media. In no time he was labelled as a ‘cheater’ for scuffing the pitch and removing Rishabh Pant’s guard marks from the pitch.

On Monday, star Indian batsman Rohit did a Steve Smith by shadow batting (minus scuffing the pitch) during Australia’s second innings. However, what’s more interesting is the fact that Steve Smith watched quietly from the side of the pitch as Rohit came in front of the stumps and practiced a front-foot shot and walked towards the other end.

Here, watch the video:

The incident involving Rohit went viral in no time and has caused quite an uproar on social media. It would be interesting to see whether Rohit was actually shadow batting or was just involved in a banter with Steve Smith.

Meanwhile, social media was soon flooded with reactions from the fans on this. While there were many who slammed Rohit and the Indian fans, on the other hand, there were several fans who saw the fun side of the incident and trolled Steve Smith on this.

There were many who even slammed Sanjay Manjrekar and others for comparing both the incidents. Fans weren’t happy with the comparison and even took potshots at the commentators.
