Indian wicket keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant trolled his teammate Washington Sundar while fielding against England at Chennai.
Rishabh Pant Trolls Sundar
So, while he has been continuously talking in the Test series against England at Chennai, a lot of it has been captured by the stump mic. However, something that he told Washington Sundar has got fans laughing out loud.
During the 70th over of the innings, Sibley managed to defend a delivery from Washington Sundar. Pant decided it was a good idea to troll the all-rounder and he was heard screaming, “Mera naam hai Washington, Mujhe jana hai DC” which translates to, “My name is Washington, and I want to go to DC”.
As soon as this was heard, netizens made sure to share videos of the same.
