Rohit Sharma loses cool on Navdeep Saini, asks him to use his head
Mumbai: In the recently concluded third T20I against South Africa which India lost by 9 wickets, the usually calm and composed Rohit Sharma was seen losing his cool momentarily. The cause for him losing his temper was Navdeep Saini, after the 26-year-old conceded two boundaries in two consecutive deliveries.
The incident happened in the 12th over of the second innings. South African skipper Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma were gradually taking away the game from India and Saini did not help the situation by giving away consecutive boundaries. At the time, skipper Virat Kohli had gone off the field and Vice-captain Rohit Sharma was in charge.

The first ball was a back-of-the-length delivery that was shown away to the boundary by Bavuma. The next was a full-toss on the leg side, which was easily hit for a boundary. After that spell, he did not bowl in the match again. He ended the match with disappointing figures of 25 runs in two overs with zero wickets.
