Bumrah started with a length delivery and Burns failed to read the ball. As a result, the ball took the edge of the bat and went to the right side of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. Pant dived because the young wicketkeeper’s fingers fell down due to the ball being down. Although this catch was difficult. Pant gave life to Rory Burns in this way.
Burns was later dismissed by Ravichandran Ashwin on a personal score of 33. After this, fans started trolling Pant on social media. Earlier, during the tour of Australia, Pant had done well with the bat but his wicketkeeping was not much. During that time he also missed a number of catches.
