Rohit Sharma unhappy with Yuzvendra Chahal during field placement
It is worth mentioning here that Prasidh Krishna ripped through the defence of the West Indies’ batting line-up. He not only took wickets but also mounted immense pressure on the visitors. The Caribbeans found it literally tough to tackle his deliveries.
Krishna bowled 9 overs where he took 4 wickets. He bowled 3 maiden overs and conceded just 12 runs. Meanwhile, Indian captain Rohit Sharma was spotted losing his cool while setting field placement. Ahead of the start of the 45th over, Rohit was unhappy with Yuzvendra Chahal.
The video clip of Rohit scolding his teammate Chahal has gone viral on social media portals. The skipper was totally unhappy with Chahal’s attitude on the field. So, he asked him to run much faster towards his fielding position.

While setting the field, the skipper yelled at the leg-spinner by saying, “Kya hua terko? Bhaag kyun nahi raha hai theek se? Chal udhar bhaag (Translating it into English:- What happened to you? Why are you not running properly? Go and field there [long-off]).”
