As the clip went viral, many fans deemed it a case of Pandya abusing Rohit. However, it was evident that Hardik was only telling Rohit not to worry about what others had to say when a DRS concerns his bowling. The clip invited different reactions from the fans all over Twitter beneath the viral hashtag.
Coming to the series, India had won the second T20I but lost the third match as Suryakumar Yadav’s brilliant century proved to be in vain. England beat India by 17 runs on Sunday to earn a consolation victory in the Twenty20 series which the touring side won 2-1.
Chasing 216, India made a poor start as they lost Rishabh Pant in the second over before Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli fell for 11 runs each to leave their side in trouble at 31-3, before Yadav took charge at Trent Bridge.
His masterful 117 came off 55 balls and contained 14 fours and six sixes to give India hope but the lower order crumbled and they finished on 198-9 from their 20 overs.
