In the final over of day 2’s play, Shubman Gill hammered a well-timed six after which the ball landed on the sight screen but got stuck there. An Indian fan came up with a praiseworthy effort to retrieve the ball as he jumped on the sight screen to get the ball out. Upon fetching the ball, the fan was spotted waving it for fans to see. While he was having his moment of fame, captain Rohit Sharma wasn’t pleased with what was happening as he got angry and was heard yelling: ‘Hatao usko udhar se (get him removed from sight screen)’.
