Watch: Rishabh Pant howls weirdly while keeping

by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Rishabh Pant’s entertainment behind the stumps reached a new high on Friday as he made a weird howl that had fielders around him laughing.

The incident came in the 37th over of the Australian innings, soon after Matthew Wade had arrived at the wicket to join Marnus Labuschagne. Washington Sundar was driven to mid-off by Wade and as soon as the shot was played, Pant howled, leaving the fielders around him amused.

Pant himself seemed to like what he did as he was seen laughing around with his mates after the delivery.

It was taken up by fans who compared the noise to an alarm sound. Pant is known for his entertaining jibes from behind the wicket. Stump mic had caught some funny comments from him at Australian batsmen on his last tour Down Under. This time around, he had been comparatively hushed, but this latest incident has fans going gaga over the entertainment he adds.
