Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was having fun of the 3rd Test against England at the Sardar Patel Stadium.
Pant tried his hands at the drone camera during a practice. Pant takes the remote in his hands with vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane smiling as the drone hangs above head coach Ravi Shastri, who was addressing the squad at the end of the training session in the video shown by BCCI on their official Twitter page,
The camera moved up veteran batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who tried to take down the device with his bat. Off-spinner and Player in the 2nd Test Match, Ravichandran Ashwin, also tried his best to take the drone.
However, the video’s greatest moment came around the 13-second mark when Pant made the drone fly over skipper Virat Kohli, who was taken entirely off-guard and captured on the camera flinching.
With the 4-match Test series locked at 1-1, the remaining 2 Tests hold the key as the ICC World Test Championship final at the post. India leveled the 4-match series with a record win over England at Chepauk in the 2nd Test match.
Earlier, Pant took to Twitter to reveal that he calls the drone camera Spidey. “I’ve spent a lot of time behind the stumps, thought of taking in a new view at the nets today! Meet my new friend, and I call him spidey,” Pant has tweeted on Monday.
Pulls off brilliant catches & stumpings 👍
