The conversation became amusing when Bumrah read out a comment from wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant who challenged Sharma for a six-hitting challenge.
Upon hearing Bumrah say the same, a “confident” Sharma didn’t even appear to consider Pant for a six-hitting challenge. “Saala ek saal hua nahin usko cricket khel ke, chakke ka competition lagayega [He has only played for a year but wants to engage in a six-hitting challenge],” Sharma said jokingly.
