In T20s, fielders need to back bowlers in order to restrict the opposition to a comparatively smaller total, but when things don’t go as expected, they get abused by their teammates. On Tuesday, Mumbai Indians (MI) spinner, Piyush Chawla was at the receiving end when he let the ball slip through his legs, leading Rohit Sharma to fume.

Having taken 11 wickets in seven matches at an impressive economy rate of 7.11, Piyush Chawla is going through decent outings in the IPL 2023. The 34-year-old continued to shine against Gujarat Titans as well, claiming 2/34 off his four overs at Motera Stadium. Despite staging a reasonably good performance on a track that has been assisting the batters more than the bowlers, he received a lot of criticism.

However, it is pertinent to say that there was nothing to do with his bowling for that. The incident took place on the 4th ball of the 17th over when Abhinav Manohar hit Riley Meredith’s wonderful yorker straight to Chawla at short third. But the leg-spinner took his eyes off while collecting the ball, resulting in the leather going past him for four runs.

Considering the match situation when MI bowlers were leaking runs at a high rate, Rilee Meredith, as well as skipper Rohit Sharma, was not happy with Chawla’s casual effort.

With anger, Rohit Sharma was seen cussing at Chawla, probably questioning him on how he could miss the ball when he did not need to move an inch to stop the ball. Rilee Meredith, too, was frustrated, throwing hands in disappointment as there should have been a better fielding effort by Chawla to stop the David Miller-Abhinab Manohar carnage.

Here is the video of the incident:

Netizens too joined hands, but unsurprisingly most of them made fun of the whole scenario as Chawla and Rohit are two widely popular figures on social media.
