The Men in Blue are currently locking horns with the Aussies in their backyard Down Under and are on the roll in the ongoing first Test match. As per the latest developments, the Virat Kohli led boys are smelling victory with the team being just a couple of wickets away from a win and taking lead in the series. But the wickets and the run aside, the match has been making news for some other hilarious moments. R Ashwin and Rohit Sharma’s super-awkward handshake moment has us in splits.
The uncomfortable few seconds took place on day 4 of the ongoing first Test match when an over wrapped up and R Ashwin was making his way back to his fielding position. Rohit Sharma, with all good intention, ran up to Ashwin to congratulate him on his fantastic over. But the off spinner was too busy speaking to someone to missed Rohit walking behind him with his hand stretched out for a handshake. This went on for a few seconds, Rohit followed Ashwin with his hands out but Ashwin did not return the favour. Ouch! Rohit eventually ended his gesture with a pat on Ashwin’s back.
The moment has gone viral on social media and has been receiving hilarious reactions from people.
While we’re sure Ashwin didn’t ignore Rohit’s handshake on purpose, it has definitely given us a good laugh for a few days.
