In a hilarious video that has recently surfaced on social media, Team India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma was seen hilariously showing the middle-finger to Rishabh Pant after a COVID-19 test. Meanwhile, the Indian cricketers are in a light mood after they took a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series beating England by 66 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Meanwhile, amid the coronavirus pandemic, the players are in a bio-bubble and are constantly undergoing COVID-19 tests. The cases have suddenly gone up steeply in the last few days in India which compelled BCCI to organise the matches behind closed doors to avoid any mishaps.
During one such test, Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant were seen having a fun conversation which was shared by the latter on his Instagram story which has now gone viral. In the video, Rohit Sharma can be seen having his COVID test and Rishabh Pant asking, “Kaise Ho Bhaiya? (How are you brother?)”
However, Rohit Sharma was seen in a jolly mood during the COVID-19 test as he just pointed his middle-finger towards Rishabh Pant.

Speaking of the game, Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy put on 135 in a little over 14 overs, and at the time they made the target of 317 look insufficient. But England’s innings came crashing down once debutant Prasidh Krishna found a way through. They lost 10 wickets within 116 runs from there, with all of India’s seamers coming to the party to the opponent at bay and win the match by 66 runs.
Previously, it was Krunal Pandya and KL Rahul’s 100+ run stand that propelled India to 317 runs. Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan also made useful made contributions but the Men in Blues were in a spot of bother losing a few wickets in quick succession but Krunal and Rahul took their side to a safe total which was enough to seal a win.
