Fielders usually celebrate after taking a catch but Rohit Sharma produced a hilarious moment when he celebrated a bumped catch. Manish Pandey mistimed his cover drive which came off the toe end of the bat and went at covers to Rohit Sharma who celebrated the once bounce catch to entertain the crowd.
After losing all their matches so far, Mumbai Indians had a disappointing start against Lucknow Super Giants as well. MI won the toss and asked the opposition to bat first. LSG started very well as they were on 57/1 at the end of power play. However, Rohit Sharma produced a hilarious moment to entertain the spectators.
Murugan Ashwin was bowling the seventh over of the innings and he bowled a full and wide delivery on the last ball of the over. Manish Pandey was on the strike and he tried to play a cover drive. However, the batter missed the shot and the ball came off the toe end of the bat. Rohit Sharma was fielding at covers and he grabbed the ball on one bounce.
Rohit started celebrating the take like a wicket in a hilarious manner. The crowd also responded to the celebration and they cheered him. Here is how Twitter reacted to the incident.
Rohit's celebration 😂
Hope they win!
