Rohit Sharma fumes at cameraman; gets hit back at by Gavaskar after Jadeja ‘pleads’ for unsuccessful review vs England

After Rohit Sharma and India destroyed all three of their reviews in under 60 overs, Sunil Gavaskar was not happy.

India’s Review Woes Mount as Root & Foakes Dominate Session

Following an impressive first session, Joe Root and Ben Foakes upset India by putting on a tenacious combination that kept the home team waiting. India had England at 112/5, but a century-stand from Root and Foakes prevented Rohit and Co. from promptly finishing the England innings. India regretted losing all three of their reviews in less than 60 overs, while Root and Foakes made sure that England had their first-ever wicketless session between lunch and tea.

Shortly into the third session, the first two reviews were burnt on Root and the last one on Foakes. India immediately advanced as Ravindra Jadeja had the England wicketkeeper batsman stuck on the back foot. After a protracted debate with the player, Rohit walked upstairs, and the umpire rejected it, putting him back in the firing line. However, the ball tracker indicated that while the ball was pitched and struck in line, it was traveling down leg and missing all three stumps.

Rohit’s Frustration Grows as Reviews Dwindle

The camera continued to show Rohit on the big screen before India lost all of their reviews, and the skipper lost his composure as a result. He motioned to the large screen, requesting that the cameraman concentrate on the DRS instead than him, as he had done during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match against Australia the previous year. And sure enough, the ball tracker showed at the instant he did that.

But when Foakes made it through, the late Sunil Gavaskar said on TV that it was a poor decision. “Not the greatest recommendation. Rohit was not enthusiastic. It seems as if he was compelled to do it. The hitter would have been in danger if there had been even the slightest suggestion of turn, but the ball passed through. Gavaskar said on television, “It just struck the front pad, not the rear pad at all.

“Now, all reviews are gone. I realize that bowlers may become pumped. They (and others) need to realize where the ball struck in order to get a wicket. You want to make sure, at the very least, that they should have the benefit of the doubt in the event that things don’t go your way. After then, everything is OK. You’ve lost the review here, not that you lost it elsewhere.”

Nick Knight concurs.

Nick Knight, a former England opener who was commentating with Gavaskar when India’s third DRS passed without a response, reached a consensus with his broadcast partner. With a 113-run partnership, England was frustrating India, but luckily for the home side, Mohammed Siraj gave them a breakthrough by taking Foakes’ wicket and then Tom Hartley’s. However, Joe Root is still going strong, and India can come back to bother them if there are no more reviews.

“Jadeja gave a tearful evaluation, appealing for Rohit to come upstairs. I agree with you, however; this didn’t seem plausible. This is noteworthy since England currently has three reviews whereas they currently have none,” Knight said.
