Watch: Rohit Sharma exhibits impressive footwork to save himself from getting stumped against Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2019.
The incident occurred when the Mumbai Indians skipper tried to dance down the pitch in an attempt to hit Shreyas Gopal out of the ground. However, the bowler saw him coming and changed the direction of the ball.
Rohit, however, thought on his feet – quite literally – and kicked the ball away. The right-hander knew that he would be unable to get his bat to the ball in time, thus falling back on his football skills.
