A video of Rohit Sharma asking Rishabh Pant for an explanation for his bad dismissal has gone viral. The incident involved the opening game of the Super Fours clash between India and Pakistan, where Pant managed to score 14 from 12 balls before throwing his wicket away in a reverse sweep. As soon as he returned to the locker room, skipper Rohit saw Sharma Pant question the reason for his poor shot selection, as can be seen in the video:

This video also shows Pant arguing with his skipper about why he played the shot. It should be mentioned that in the playing eleven, Pant will face stiff competition from Dinesh Karthik and the youngster will have to realize that his inclusion comes at a premium.

The much-criticized first-class batters finally showed what they are capable of as India put down a solid 181 for 7 here on Sunday against Pakistan in an Asian Cup Super 4 game. Skipper Rohit Sharma (28) and KL Rahul (28) were outstanding in the Powerplay, while Virat Kohli (60) gave a glimpse of his vintage self by playing one of his most sublime strokes in recent times to take India to a more than respectable total.

What everyone of India’s highest order wanted was a change of mindset and the strike rates of 175 (Rohit), 140 (Rahul) and 136 (Kohli) were proof of that. Kohli deserves the maximum credit for the total number India took against Pakistani spinners, especially leg spinner Shadab Khan (2/31 in 4 overs), who took important wickets from Rahul and Rishabh Pant (14).
His innings had four limits and a six, along with his signature between the wickets, where he effortlessly turned ones into two. Skipper Rohit was pilloried for their slow approach in the Powerplay, but made his intentions known in the very first over when he gave Naseem Shah the charge and got a one-bounce-four over cover point. It was followed by a signature pull shot for a six.
