Rishabh Pant sledges struggling Aussies, says ‘not everyone is Pujara here’

Written by Vipin Darwade

On the second day of the Adelaide test, India’s wicket keeper Rishabh Pant took on the Australians, as he teased them saying ‘not everyone here is Cheteshwar Pujara’, highlighting the difficult conditions that the Indian batsman handled on Day 1 to take India to 250/9.

On Day 2 of the first Test, the stump mic recorded Pant unleashing some gems from behind the stumps as he tried to get into the heads of the Aussie batsmen. One of the phrases he used to unsettle the hosts was, “Not everyone is Pujara here, lads”.

Pant used the phrase while Usman Khawaja was batting, who as per tweets on social media, even replied to Pant saying he isn’t Rohit Sharma too.

The constant chirping from behind the stumps seems to have gotten in the head of Khawaja – who was dismissed by Ravichandran Ashwin soon after. Having been touted to outscore Virat Kohli in the series, Khawaja got himself going and scored 28 runs from 125 balls before falling prey to the Indian off-spinner.
