Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was dismissed by Alzarri Joseph at the non-striker's end as he used his shoe to deflect a straight drive from Suryakumar Yadav back onto the stumps as Rishabh Pant was caught out of his crease. Rishabh Pant could manage to score just 11 runs from 9 balls.
India's wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was dismissed by Alzarri Joseph in an unlucky fashion at the non-striker's end during India's first ODI against West Indies at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday. The incident took place in the 17th over of India's innings when Suryakumar Yadav played a straight drive and Alzarri Joseph managed to stick his shoe out and deflected the ball back to the stumps as Rishabh Pant was caught short of his ground at bowler's end.
The fast-bowler gave the Indian wicket-keeper a sympathetic send-off as he walked back to the pavilion in the first ODI. During his stay at the crease, Rishabh Pant managed to score just 11 runs from 9 deliveries which included two boundaries as well.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the incident.
Pant is gone!!
When luck is not on your side!

Rishabh Pant is walking off and what a way to get dismissed when he needs runs under his name in this format🤦♂️. It was a beautiful shot by SKY but ended up getting the wicket of Pant 🙂. #INDvsWI #RishabhPant #SKY— Harshit Poddar (@harshitpoddar09) February 6, 2022
