AUS v IND: Australia’s Will Pucovski’s subtle sledge of India’s Rishabh Pant

Australia’s rookie sensation Will Pucovski has subtly sledged Rishabh Pant after the Indian wicketkeeper dropped him twice during day one of the SCG Test.

All eyes were on debutant Pucovski in Sydney on Thursday and the young gun looked incredibly poised at the crease in his long-awaited first Test.

The 22-year-old was eventually dismissed for an impressive 62 runs but it wasn’t a chanceless innings as Pant gave him two lives behind the stumps

However, the Indian glovesman appeared to claim the second dropped catch and Pucovski started walking back to the pavilion before replays earned him a reprieve.

The catch was ruled a drop after being shown on the big screen and Pucovski made his way back to the crease t o continue his eventful first Test knock.

Pucovski was asked about the incident and couldn’t resist a subtle sledge, as Australia finished 2-166 with Marnus Labuschagne (67) and Steve Smith (31) in control at stumps.

“It was an interesting one. I thought he had claimed it so I just assumed he must have caught it,” Pucovski said.

“Maybe I’ve got too much faith in people.”

“I looked at it on the big screen and I was talking to Marnus about it. I said, ‘I don’t think that’s out’.

“It looked like he’d smothered it into the ground. It was pretty cool to get called back.

“You go from the complete disappointment of being out to the great thing of having another chance.”
