Rohit Sharma’s hilarious response to Umpire’s Wide call

Cricket players from India have said many times that Rohit Sharma is one of the hilarious characters around. In a program couple of years ago, the cricketer received massive applause for recalling funny incidents about Indian cricketers. During the 1st T20I between India and West Indies, Rohit Sharma again displayed his funny side.

Bishnoi was bowling the 8th over and the ball went past the leg stumps. The Indian team appealed for stumping but were shocked when the umpire Jayaraman Madanagopal gave it a wide. Rohit Sharma who was standing at short square leg wasn’t amused at the umpire’s call and said “Toh wide Kidhar de rha hai yaar” (How come you are giving it a wide?)

India opted for a review and although the ball did not nicked the bat but it certainly brushed the thigh pad and the umpire overturned the wide decision. It was on Virat Kohli’s insistence that Rohit Sharma opted for the review as the former captain said that there were certainly two sounds.
