In the game of cricket, helmets are one of the important gears for a batsman and during the 4th ODI between India and Australia, it has realized once again.
Indian opener Rohit Sharma was at the non-striker’s end, after completing a single when Australia’s wicketkeeper Mathew Wade, mistakingly, threw the ball straight onto his helmet.
Sharma was unaware of the fact that the ball was coming towards him and he was taken by a surprise when the ball hit his helmet. Usually, batsmen around the world prefer batting in cap against spinners, especially in hot and humid conditions. But, Rohit was lucky that he was wearing a helmet and the ball didn’t hit his head directly.
Wade immediately apologized to Sharma for his act as it wasn’t intentional and Rohit didn’t react. However, during the ongoing ODI series, there hasn’t been a lot of sledging and banter between players of the two teams.
Here is the video of the incident:
